METUCHEN, NJ – On UWS Weekly: Episode Two, host Jonathan Ward sat down with Detroit City FC coach Sam Piraine and team captain Sarah Huge to learn more about the club and their community of supporters. The live show gave a recap of the inaugural season for the women’s side and a look into 2021. The DCFC captain shared her appreciation for what Detroit City’s UWS team has given her post college after recovering from a devastating knee injury that stunted her playing career at Michigan State.
“I always knew I’d be back on the field…then to come back and have other opportunities post college, I was definitely playing the best soccer ever after college,” said Sarah Huge. “Though I wasn’t able to showcase it at the end of my college career, I can do it now. The biggest thing is I never gave up knowing that I can still do it, it was just (a matter of) having the platform to be able to do it at a high level and great people supporting around after college.”
