Alex Morgan Gives High School Soccer Team an AWEsomely Active Surprise

September 7, 2019


[MUSIC PLAYING] So here we are, pulling up at Rex
Putnam High School in Portland, Oregon. And I’m teaming up with Tampax
to give their girls’ soccer team a huge surprise. I’m really excited for
it, because there are some girls on the team that have
overcome some obstacles and one girl, in particular, who has an ACL injury,
which I can definitely relate to, having that in high school. The first time I tore my
ACL was April of 2013. It’s definitely a pain I
still have nightmares about. We were supposed to be first in state
that year, but I was really sad. When I heard Rachel’s story,
it’s not easy to come back. I really give her credit
for being confident enough to keep going and just
knowing that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. And I just really hope
she has a great year. And I really can’t wait
to meet her and just get to know her and share our stories. All right, guys, let’s
hold the balls there. Let’s come over here, please. One thing we preach is
confidence, and that’s kind of what this season is
about, from last year coming in a bunch of young
soccer players this year. We grow, and with that,
we grow with confidence. And yeah, actually, we want to
reward you guys for your hard work. And we have a special guest to train
with you guys today a little bit. [GASPS] How are you guys? You guys can say hi. [LAUGHING] I think I’m just going to join
in your practice, maybe hang out? Yeah. That sound good? Is that OK? Yeah, OK. [LAUGHING] When I first saw her,
I started tearing up. I was so surprised when I saw her. [MUSIC PLAYING] I felt this happy feeling. I couldn’t stop smiling. I couldn’t say anything either. I was like, oh my god, she’s here. She’s at our school. It’s kind of like
seeing your role model. I mean, it’s like, oh my
goodness, she’s here watching us. Well, I’m playing with you,
not just watching you guys. I think the important
thing about sports is it’s 50% mental and 50% physical in
the way that, coming back from injury, you don’t want to feel like,
oh, is my knee feeling OK? It’s in the back of your mind, and then
your confidence gets a little shot. So it’s all together. But just having that belief, I
guess, is the most important thing. Awesome too that she got
to be in our practice. Because I think that just
made us all look up to her that much more, to see her skill, and
just her talking about confidence, and how she brings up our confidence. I just want to say thank
you so much to Tampax for coming to our school
and our team and giving us that confidence and that extra boost. I want to do a selfie. All right, ready? 1, 2, 3– Tampax! In partnership with Tampax
Proactive, I want girls everywhere to have the confidence, comfort, and
protection to run, play, and give it their all any day of the month. For more information, follow Tampax
on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram. [MUSIC PLAYING]

    Lucky Alex Morgan is my idol. That's why I play soccer. Even know I have been kicked in the ankle it was fractured I had to wear a boot all summer . But I keep playing soccer like she did when she got hurt. I still love playing soccer. I missed several weeks of soccer.

    Every time I practice I pretend she's with me, I scream every time even though I know she's not there, and I get so pumped and excited. I wonder how I would've reacted if I actually saw her.

  • Reply Art-maGination April 22, 2016 at 6:21 pm

    …..to avoid injury, learn to play quick, release the ball quick and avoid dangerous tackle and 50/50 balls. In the field some bad players will intentionally try to hurt/injured you if you hold on to the ball too long.

    So good that she did that for them, also that they didn't overdo the fact that it was sponsered by tampax for advertising. It's so good that they got to train with her, I would have personally wanted to see a match with her in it
