Heather O'Reilly helps lead U.S. soccer team

Well before she became a world class soccer player, Heather O'Reilly sprinted against the boys at her brother's youth soccer tryout. "I was dead last," she said. "But I think I turned some heads with how I kept up with the boys that were three years older than me." With her trademark speed and acceleration, both essential for superior goal scorers, O'Reilly has since caught the attention of thousands more on the soccer field. (Raleigh News & Observer)
