2:28 pm CDT June 13, 2017

Emily Lilly is a recent graduate of Tinley Park High School and played both outside midfielder and defense on the varsity soccer team.

How did you get started playing soccer?

I started when I was really little. I did the Kickers league [in Oak Forest] probably when I was around 6 [years old] and my mom was the coach. I slowly went into travel league with a couple of my friends, and I just fell in love with it. 

Why do you love soccer?
