About Lori Lindsey
Lindsey is a graduate of Pike H.S, where she was named NSCAA Parade All-American and earned first team All-State honors four consecutive years. Upon graduating, she was the all-time leading prep scorer in Indiana high school history. Lindsey played at the University of Virginia from 1998–2001 and was the school’s first-ever Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year winning the award two consecutive years (2000 & 2001) joining Mia Hamm as the only other player to achieve that distinction. She finished sixth all-time scorer in UVA history with 33 goals and 76 points and was named NSCAA Second-Team All-American in 2001 and Third-Team All-American in 2000. She was also a 2001 finalist for the M.A.C. Award. Lindsey was named Female Athlete of the Year at UVA for the 2001–02 academic year.
Her professional playing career spanned 13 years. Her most notable accomplishments include representing the United States Women’s National Team at the 2011 Women’s World Cup in Germany and helping the team earn the 2012 Olympic Gold Medal in London.
“She never doubted herself. She’s worked extremely hard. She’s always looked at her game and said ‘how can I get better, how can I get better’. She made herself a national team player over the course of time after she graduated. I think she deserves a lot of credit for that. I wish more people would take that attitude…Some would tend to make excuses or quit or not persevere like she did,” said Steve Swanson, Lindsey’s college coach at the University of Virginia.
