Annie Williams is a two time Defensive Player of the Year in the Summit League and an All-Conference performer in the WPSL. We checked in with her from Costa Rica where she's playing for Saprissa and finishing her degree.
She talks about adjusting to a new style of play, getting coached purely in Spanish, and her plans for this summer (#SpoilerAlert: she's returning to the Fire in the WPSL). You can watch the video chat embedded below or download it as a podcast in iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.

You can watch the LIVE video from yesterday in the embedded tweet below (the preview image is of Taylor shouting out to all the women on International Women's Day, which is perfect) or you can listen to it as a podcast on iTunes, Google Play, or Stitcher.
