“It was an awesome experience,” Mobley said. “I feel very privileged that I had the opportunity so young to represent my country.”
At 17, Mobley is one of several talented teenagers involved in the senior national women’s program. Despite losing both games against the Connecticut-based visitors by a 1-0 margin, Mobley said her team took some lessons from the Chargers’ approach and style of play.
She said, “They are really quick on the ball. They pass, they don’t hold it too long, they win every ball. We need to learn from that and learn to move quicker.”
Mobley is back home after attending the King’s Academy in Tennessee where she earned All District Team honors and was named offensive player of the year while playing for the Lady Lions last year.
“It was a very good experience, a little too much for me because I missed home. However, I learned a lot and gained a lot of experience.”
She has enrolled at the University College of the Cayman Islands and is enjoying college life.
Mobley is excited about the opportunity to compete against other collegiate teams, with the hope of gaining an athletic scholarship.
“It is good to be noticed by schools early so when the time is ready I have a variety of options,” she said.
