Hi - my name is Merry Gaylord. For me, the best thing about playing soccer is being part of a team - I really love the camaraderie and the competition. I'm always willing to work hard and train hard. One of my strengths is being calm and composed on the ball, and I have a lot of endurance, thanks to my track experience. I'm perfectly comfortable building plays out of the back, and while I consider myself more of a defensive specialist, I also love to play up through the mid field as well. I always bring a good attitude to training and to the competition.
