Women’s World Football Show explores the journeys of the game’s favorite players and teams – storied and new!
Join us as we welcome 2-time Olympic gold medal winner Angela Hucles. The former U.S.
Women’s National Team midfielder brings us back to her days growing up in Virginia Beach and how she developed her love for the game.
Anyone who has gone through the trophy hall at University of Virginia knows the name of Angela Hucles. It took 15 years for someone to come along and break a few of her all-time scoring records. Angela’s journey into pro soccer began as a member of the first-ever Boston Breakers team and in fact, scored the first goal in the history of the Breakers (in 2001 a preseason exhibition match against Duke Blue Devils).
As a member of the USWNT, Angela was a player known for her ability to come off the bench in pivotal moments and strike an impactful pose. In 2008, Angela finished the Olympic campaign tied with the most goals of the tournament and a gold medal around her neck.
Her impact on the game didn’t end there. Angela has spent her post-soccer career giving a voice to those in desperate need of one. Angela is the current president of Women’s Sports Foundation; She has worked with the U.S. State Department and You Can Play organization to help empower LGBT youth through sport; and she founded Empowerment Through Sport Leadership Series, a unique conference featuring speakers and programs dedicated to teaching leadership and healthy living on and off the pitch.
Angela Hucles’ journeys have made her one of the more impactful and inspiring athletes of all time! Now, sit back and enjoy the one and only Angela Huuuuuu-cles!
