SS PODCAST: Houston Dash defender Annika Schmidt on trusting God's plan after serious injury

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING ANNIKA SCHMIDT

Annika Schmidt is a defender for the Houston Dash in the National Women’s Soccer League. In college, she was a three-year starter at Butler University and selected to the All-Big East first team three consecutive years.

In 2020, she signed to play overseas in Sweden with Goteborg FC, and then in January 2021 she signed with the Houston Dash in the NWSL. In May 2022, however, she tore her ACL and meniscus while training and was forced to miss the entire year.

Today on the podcast, we talk to Annika about her soccer career, her faith in Jesus, the knee injury she suffered in May 2022, and how she’s trusting God to guide her in the midst of this setback.
