Coach Vogel's Scouting Report: "I first saw Sydney at our August 2010 camp. I immediately recognized her athleticism and willingness to take players on one-on-one. The Division I game demands athleticism, physicality and determination, and Sydney possesses all of these traits. Her upside is tremendous as she is a great student and will grow quickly in our program."
Sydney Morris on why she chose George Washington: "I chose GW because I desire to attend a prestigious academic institution that will undoubtedly prepare me for my future endeavors. GW offers a one-of-a-kind university experience to say the least. I am excited to play for GW because I know I will be challenged through the competitive women's soccer program and ultimately grow, not only as a player, but also as an individual. The program's insistency to excel and focus on becoming a threat from every position on the field reveals its excellence and I am very excited to have such an opportunity."
