    She is richer now than she ever could possibly be playing soccer.

    So not just a lesson in overcoming adversity and perspective, but a lesson about opportunity cost even if you are a really great soccer player.

    For all the self loathers like myself....

    My daughter has found new passions since soccer, and we talk about whether she would have found them if we were continuing to put in the time to soccer...the "opportunity cost". But, the benefit that soccer left for us was a really strong father/daughter relationship. Prior to the explosion of girl's sports, I don't think fathers and daughters had the ability to share interests the way we do now. Even though I shake my head at the extremes I see in parental involvement (especially with the youngers), it all comes from a good place.

    PERFECT example on how you don't have to attend Stanford, CAL or IVY league to be successful. Smart kid. Would've done well ANYWHERE she went. She took advantage of the opportunities available.

    In the end game she will most certainly be accepted to med school.

    Great story (other than so many injuries, of course).
