Coach Ambrose on Leila: “Leila is one of the most technically gifted players in the class. She also competes with every ounce of her body whenever she plays the game. She has tremendous instincts and a high level of understanding of the game. With her tactical understanding, Leila is equipped to play in several attacking and defending positions. I love her intensity and competitive nature. Her Jacksonville FC team has annually been one of the strongest in the country in the age group.”
