What They're Saying: Heather O'Reilly

"Soccer is this incredible draw for all of us, I think to be together, to connect, to empower people, and to just enjoy this beautiful game. I feel like this is right out of 'Field of Dreams.' 'If you build it, they will come.' And it's just been really special how people have come together."

-- Heather O'Reilly on US Women, a team of former USWNT players set to compete at The Soccer Tournament, a 7-on-7 competition June 1-4 at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, North Carolina. Mia Hamm, Carla Overbeck, Michelle Akers and Wendy Palladino will join O'Reilly in coaching US Women, the only all-women's entrant in the 32-team tournament with a $1 million prize (winner-take-all). Former USWNT players Cat Whitehill, Lori Chalupny and Lori Lindsay are initial selections on the team's roster. (ESPN)
