Tennessee Update: Soccer Blog (11/9)

Junior midfielder Tori Bailey's energy and an agility on the field are unmatched. Her aggressive style of play and her 5-0 stature make her easy to spot from the stands. In addition to being a fan favorite at Regal Soccer Stadium, Bailey is also one of the most inquired about player on the road.

Bailey's inspired play and kind heart make her easy for fans to identify with.

"I was told a bunch of times that I wasn't big enough and I wasn't good enough," Bailey said. "It was kind of like a challenge for me - wanting to be better and wanting to succeed. I just love the game; it has always come so natural to me. When I get out in the field, everything changes. I just have that hunger and passion. I would set a goal, meet that goal and want to meet another goal."
