Radwanski on Harkes:“Lauren has a tremendous soccer brain. As a central midfielder she values the ball, has excellent vision to pick a pass, and a good understanding of how to control tempo, which is critical at our level. She has a knack for finding the right supporting positions, which make her a valuable link player. She has grown up in a family that is passionate about the game. It has been exciting to watch her game continue to develop, and I see a bright future ahead for Lauren.”
