Kristine Lilly (@KristineLilly) is a PCA National Advisory Board Member and former U.S. National Women’s Soccer Team Captain, who retired from international play with a record 352 caps. Kristine was a four-time NCAA Champion at the University of North Carolina and went on to play in five World Cups, helping the U.S. to championships in 1991 and 1999. She is currently an Assistant Coach for the University of Texas.

In this video, Lilly advises high school athletes who are being recruited for collegiate play to continue focusing on the things that have brought high school athletic success. Rather than worrying too much about the various schools that may or may not have recruited them, players should continue working hard in school, getting the right nutrition and rest and improving their overall games.
