Danica Evans has not even set foot on the University of Portland campus for the 2013-14 season but the Colorado Rush product is already drawing attention as she has been named to the TopDrawerSoccer.com Best XI Freshman team.
Evans set the ECNL on fire in 2012/13 with 38 goals scored in 16 ECNL league games, the highest total in the country for the age group. She was also recently named to the W-League All Western Conference team for her play with the Colorado Rush Women over the summer.
Danica, a member of the U18 US National team pool, has some big shoes to fill as she will try and chase down fellow Rush alum and former Portland star Danielle Foxhoven who ranks 4th all time at Portland with 139 Points and 57 career goals.
Danica and Colorado Rush teammate Madi Hall and the rest of the Portland Pilots women will kick off the season August 23 when they host Marquette University.
