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.
