April 25, 2006
FORT WORTH, Texas - Junior forward Casey Glass took a few moments to answer four questions about the TCU soccer program. In 30 career matches, Glass has made 11 starts. Last season, she appeared in a career-high 17 games and with those 11 starts, recording 15 shots, six of which were on goal.
Q:You have been at TCU for three seasons now and each year your playing time has increased. What do you attribute your increased success on the soccer field to?
A:I have learned a lot about the game over the past three years, including how to play quicker, which is what you have to do to keep up with the pace of Division I. Each year, I have gained a lot of valuable experience, which has made me better as a player.
Q:How has the increased focus on physical fitness helped you both on and off the field?
A:The increased focus on fitness now means that we have the ability to outwork the teams that we face. This spring we've had to play with small numbers and our fitness level has helped stay competitive while playing without subs or even a man down.
Q:What are your plans for the summer, most specifically, to help yourself prepare for the upcoming fall season?
A:A lot of the girls are staying here all summer and we'll do our summer fitness program together. Everyone is planning coming back in July to work out and get us ready for the start of two-a-days which will begin the first part of August. These workouts will consist of running, lifting, and scrimmaging local teams.
Q:What is your favorite memory of playing soccer at TCU?
A:My very first start. It was a great feeling to be on the field for the national anthem, knowing that all my hard work had paid off after having spent so long watching from the sidelines.
