Be that as it may, the Washington Spirit's starlet has so far shown her "tremendous talent" during the club's preseason and offered direct assaulting play, as indicated by lead trainer Richie Burke. 

Rodman, alongside individual Spirit newbies Anna Heilferty, Sydney Schneider, and Mariana Speckmaier, marked new agreements this previous week, with Rodman's arrangement set to for the next three years. 

"Expectations can be burdensome for some new professionals, especially when you're the youngest player taken in the draft and selected very early at the second pick," Burke said to the

"Trinity has shown already in training that she is a tremendous talent and the pressure to meet those high expectations has not affected her in any way during this preseason period.

"We have seen glimpses of her speed and directness in match-play situations and I'm really excited to see her playing at the NWSL level to see what she can do against some experienced pros."
