What They're Saying About Coach Crow
University of North Carolina head coach Anson Dorrance "What I loved about coaching Dawn at the University of North Carolina was her technical and tactical platforms. Her skill set and soccer brain separated her from her peers. And on a more personal note, I loved her taste in music. I come from a family of dancers (my wife and eldest daughter) and we all know there is so much more to life than athletics. Dawn had a good balance in her life and I appreciated her for it."

Wisconsin State Director of Coaching Jim Launder "  is a big time winner, on and off the field. She will be a great representative of the University and keep up the tradition of UWSP soccer. She has great versatility as a coach and has the ability to take the reins of the UWSP program."
