Beyond the Game: Coach Highlights
This month we are highlighting Lora Gralheer. Coach Gralheer spent her youth days playing in Lexington, KY where she played recreational, select, ODP, and high school soccer. After high school, she continued her playing career at Centre College. Her earliest experience with coaching began with Commonwealth Soccer Club while she was still in high school. If a coach was willing to let her help out, she would stop by and assist with games and practices. Since that time, Coach Gralheer has become a staple in the Kentucky coaching community. Click here to learn more about Lora Gralheer’s coaching career and where that journey has led her to today!
