Originally, we were able to bring Brittany Ratcliffe onto the show for episode #25. It’s a new season with new challenges and here we are at episode #57, grateful to chat with Brittany again. However, this time around, things are a bit different. After unfortunately picking up an injury in pre-season, the fan favorite has been placed on the season ending injury list.
Despite the brutality of tearing an ACL, and the physical and mental challenges of working through rehab, Brittany is the ever-optimist, the exemplary teammate, and in incredible spirits. Join us on episode #57 as we talk about her offseason, her injury, her upcoming rehab process, and answer listener questions.

it is with the heaviest heart that i announce i have unfortunately torn my ACL and will miss much of this upcoming NWSL season. having suffered this injury 8 years ago, i know how difficult these next few months will be. i can handle the pain and i can handle the rehab, but not being able to step on the field will be the hardest part. there are no words to describe the sadness i feel in my heart but it is through adversity that we realize what we are truly made of. you can never control the adversities you face, but you can always control the response. •to my friends and family, youve supported me in the good times and the bad & i thank you for always believing in me. •to my teammates, thank you for showing me an endless amount of love and encouragement these past few weeks. •to the fans, thank you for ALWAYS bringing the energy. your spirit and your dedication are unmatched and is what makes playing in utah so special. i will miss you all dearly. officially counting down the days until my return! everyone has a story, and this is just another chapter in mine. so, lets get this comeback started yall
