"Heather is an outstanding young lady who is motivated both academically and athletically. She will prove to be another excellent signing for Mississippi State and our soccer program," McGuire said. "She has a proven track record in both high school and club level soccer having been a regular on the Region III Olympic Development regional team and her experience will be a key asset to us. She is athletic, strong, fast, has a great soccer mind, and her offensive flair will add a new dimension to our offense. We are very excited to have her join us."
