Fort Collins Native Makes U.S. Womens Soccer Team
Jaelin Howell, who graduated from Fossil Ridge High School in Fort Collins, will be representing the red, white and blue this year.
The 21-year-old has been added to the National Team roster for the SheBelieves Cup.
According to 9 News, Howell was called up after an ankle injury sidelined Samantha Lewis. Howell is no stranger to the spotlight on the world's stage as she has helped capture two youth World Cups for the United States.
She's already got plenty of experience on the national stage, having played in the 2018 FIFA under 20 Women's World Cup in France and the 2016 under 17 Women's World Cup in Jordan.
Howell's college career has been stellar as well, Jaelin has helped lead the Florida State Seminoles to the 2018 National Championship as a freshman and she was a major player in helping the Noles grab the ACC title this past year.
Howell isn't the only Coloradan on the roster. 26-year-old Lindsey Horan of Golden is also on the squad and previously played in the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup.
Also fun fact and timely that Jaelin's dad, John Howell, was a member of the Tampa Buccaneers first Super Bowl title in January of 2003. The defensive back played collegiately at Colorado State University.
Team USA is hosting Argentina, Brazil and Canada in this year's SheBelieves Cup on Feb 18,21 and 24 in Orlando, Florida.
Got Team USA...AND Go Jaelin.
