When Becky Burleigh began coaching college soccer at 21 years old, some of her players were older than she was. At 26, she became the first ever head coach for the Florida Gators' women's soccer program, where she coached for 26 seasons before retiring—and coming out of retirement to serve as interim head coach for NWSL's Florida Pride. In this episode, hear how she found her footwork in coaching and how her style changed over the course of her career.
