"When we saw her at our pre-season team camp for Southern, I knew I wanted to recruit her," noted Patriot Coach Paul Patton, present for the signing. "Kelsey is a skilled soccer player and an outstanding student. She works hard and has a great attitude. I look forward to seeing what she can do with our team and I'm excited to coach her in the Fall."
