Megan Rapinoe
Event: Soccer; Position: Midfielder
Local Affiliation: Redding

Born July 5, 1985. One of the great sports figures to come out of Redding, Rapinoe is one of Team USA’s best scorers and craftiest players. A midfielder, the 5-foot-7 Rapinoe saw the early part of her career stalled by knee injuries, but over the past year or so she has developed into a true scoring threat for the USA. She set up the clinching goal in second leg of the USA’s two-game playoff series against Italy to earn a berth to the Women’s World Cup and can strike on goal equally well with both feet. Though Rapino, whose nickname is “Pinoe,” played basketball and ran track in high school, she opted for club soccer with the Elk Grove Pride of the Women’s Premier Soccer League. She also has an extensive professional resume, including stints with the Chicago and Philadelphia franchises of Women’s Professional Soccer league. She currently plays for the Seattle Sounders of the United Soccer Leagues W-League. An honor student throughout high school, Rapinoe attended Portland University, where she was joined by her soccer-playing twin, Rachael.

@vcrizzle Doesn't necessarily make it ok, but it's also very different than if, say, a guy ran onto the pitch and did that to Megan Rapinoe.
