scurry2Briana Scurry ’99 Women’s World Cup champion goalkeeper & two-time Olympic champion dropped by “Kilmeade and Friends” to talk to Brian about concussions and the 2015 Women’s Nation Soccer Team’s chances in this World Cup.

Briana Scurry talked about how her career ended because of concussions and what she is doing to help reduce the risk for all players. Briana talked about a new headband, the Unequal Halo, that will help disperse any impact (ball, knee, head, etc…). The product is already FIFA approved and is being used by a few players right now. They also talked about the current World Cup team and concerns about going far in the tournament because they seem a little disjointed right now. She also talked about how, unlike the men’s team, the women’s team is expected to win and are held at a higher level. Briana also believes that the team will need current goalie Hope Solo to be on top of her game for the team to go far.
