I would love to one day play professional soccer, and make it on the Senior USWNT. When I was younger, I was always the smallest girl on the team, so I had to put in a lot of extra work to become more of a technical player. Because of that, I can guarantee that I will be the hardest worker on your team. It also helps that I love the game with all of my heart and I would play every minute of every day if I could. As far as academics, I plan to study business and take pre-law courses. I would like to be a role model where I can encourage young girls to believe in themselves. I'd like to help them realize that if they put in the hard work, they can accomplish anything they want to in life.

RECOMMENDATION LETTERS FROM GRACE'S COACHES:
Recommendation from Coach Rivers Guthrie, REAL Colorado ECNL Coach &
Assoc. Technical Director
"I love coaching Grace Rossner. She is a very skillful and technical player on the ball. She shines on the field and is fun to watch. She is a diverse player who can play almost any position, but no matter where she is she has an appetite to score goals."
Coach Rivers called Grace a dynamic player that excels in all areas on the field. He also said she is probably one of the most technical players to ever come out of REAL Colorado. He has trained the likes of Malloy Pugh, Sophia Smith, and Jaelin Howell. Feel free to reach out directly if you have any questions for him.

RECOMMENDATION FROM Sean D. Kelty, Executive Director, Premier Soccer Development Academy
My name is Sean Kelty and I am the Executive Director of Premier Soccer Development Academy based in Colorado, which trains and develops elite athletes from the youth (ECNL, GAL, DPL, NPL), collegiate (DI, DII, DIII, NAIA, & JC) and professional (MLS, NWSL, USL League One & Two, & MASL) levels whom currently participate on U.S. Youth (Boys and Girls) and Senior (Women's) National Teams. There are certain athletic and emotional tendencies, behaviors, and responses that you evaluate and cultivate in elite-level athletes that assure you that an athlete will be successful within their own processes and within the game. While still continuing to impact and progress her own developmental process, it is clear that Grace Rossner currently possesses most, if not all, of these attributes that have not only positioned her as one of the best players in her age group in Colorado but will undoubtedly continue to set the framework for her to become one of the best players in the country in her age group and moving forward. Grace is an attacking player who exhibits a superior ability to consistently impact the game both and off of the ball with her technique and ability to create space on the ball in pressurized areas with both composure and purpose, intelligent and penetrating movements to disrupt and create spaces in defenses, as well as a unique attacking mindset to create opportunities for both herself as well as her teammates in all types of numerical scenarios both in the possession and towards the goal. Grace exhibits an intrinsic drive and motivation to be the best version of herself in every environment and she possesses a relentless spirit to overcome any obstacle presented in front of her, which allows her to consistently dominate and progress within the game.
It is without reservation that I recommend Grace Rossner to be considered for all regional and national rankings through TopDrawerSoccer.com as she is not only considered one of the best players in her age group in the state of Colorado but considering the athletes from all of over the country that come into my training environment for development, from my view, Grace Rossner should be considered and represented as one of the best players in the country as well.
If you have any questions or if I can be of more assistance, then please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected] or by phone at 719-648-5856.
