“I am proud to welcome several members of the USA Women’s Soccer Team back to our area,” said Johns. “Abby Wambach has been a household name in our region for many years. She and her teammates, Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe and Ali Krieger, are sure to inspire young soccer players throughout the 135th Assembly District and New York state. These ladies represent all that is good in athletics and will play a positive role in the lives of many.”
Johns talked with the soccer stars about their experiences at the World Cup and how proud our country is of them. He noted that these women are exceptional role models and premier athletes who displayed true sportsmanship.
