“Elise has great field vision with the ability to read what the opposing team is doing both offensively and defensively. When they need a goal, Elise plays on top and scores. When they need more defense, Elise moves to the back and shuts down the offensive attack.”
Phil DeRosa
Head Coach - head coach of Burlingame High
