Springfield…State Representative Adam Brown (R-Champaign) had the privilege of welcoming US Youth Soccer Player of the Month for December 2014, Rylie Danner, to Springfield on Wednesday. Rylie, a member of the Midstate Soccer Club, has been a team captain for two seasons and recently signed up with the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program, the premier youth development program in the United States. During her visit to Springfield Ms. Danner was honored in Representative Brown’s House Resolution 57, which celebrated her accomplishments on the soccer field.
“It was a fun experience to come down and watch the House in Session. I also enjoyed standing up and being recognized by the entire House of Representatives when Representative Brown spoke about the Resolution congratulating me,” Rylie said.
While pursuing her athletic goals, Rylie also maintains an excellent academic record and has been on the high honor roll each quarter while taking advanced classes. A member of her student council and a volunteer for numerous causes, including an Alzheimer’s 5K Walk and community food drives, Rylie would like to continue playing soccer in college, and her accomplishments on and off the soccer field have her on the path to further success.
Representative Brown stated, “It’s always wonderful to welcome distinguished young people and their families to Springfield. As a US Youth Soccer Player of the Month, Rylie Danner’s local accomplishments have been recognized at the state and national level, and it was a joy to congratulate her on the House Floor today.”
