Former Ole Miss soccer player, goalkeeper Ann Shelton, is
featured in the SEC's 40/40 series today.
Shelton, who played at Ole Miss from 2004-07, still holds the Rebel record for goals
against average in a career (0.90) and GAA in a season (0.27).
An excerpt from the feature is below:
Ann Shelton is the ultimate team player. Even today, nearly five years
since she last played in goal for the Ole Miss soccer team, Shelton
remains the consummate team player. Getting Shelton to talk about
herself, rather than her team, is tough because no matter the situation,
she seems to take a team approach.
Growing up in Tullahoma, Tenn., Shelton had eyes for another sport
before soccer. "I had always played basketball, so I thought I was going
to go to college and play basketball," she says. "Soccer wasn't big
growing up in Tennessee, so I played basketball. Because I was so tall,
they wanted me to play post, and I said 'no, I'm not going to be this
tall forever, I'm the point guard, I'm not going to play post.'
Basketball was my first love.
