Lindsey Michelle Horan (born May 26, 1994) is an American professional soccer forward. She currently plays for the United States women's national soccer team and is signed to the professional French club, PSG.[1] She was the leading scorer for the United States U-17 team at the 2010 CONCACAF U-17 Women's Championship.[2][3]

Early life[edit]

Horan grew up in Golden, Colorado. Although she attended Golden High School, she did not play soccer for the school. Instead, she played club soccer with the Colorado Rush. She first started playing for the Rush during the U-11 tryouts. In March, when Horan was 15 years old and was one of the youngest players on the United States under-17 women's national team, she scored 12 goals in nine games (a team best) leading up to the North American/Central American/Caribbean U-17 tournament in Costa Rica. During her sophomore year at Golden, she was named to the Parade Magazine High School All-American team although she didn't play high school soccer.[4][5]

In 2012, Horan was named the top-ranked college prospect by ESPN.[6] Although she had a scholarship in place to attend University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, Horan decided to postpone her college career and signed with French club, Paris Saint-Germain FC (PSG).[7]
