Coming into the Corona del Mar High girls' soccer program as a freshman, Ally Brahs definitely was going to get on the field.
All Coach Bryan Middleton had to do was look at her size and her ability to know he had a special player.
Some of the best players are ones who have more of a fluid role, ones who can play all over the pitch. That was definitely true for Brahs.
"She was physically gifted enough, even as a freshman, that I played her at defensive midfield and forward throughout the whole season," Middleton said. "She kind of filled in spots as they were needed throughout the season."
This winter Brahs, now a junior, has clearly thrived in an offensive role. She scored a team-high 16 goals for the Sea Kings, whose season ended Thursday with a 1-0 loss to top-seeded San Clemente in a CIF Southern Section Division I quarterfinal match.
