Kansas freshman Emily Cressy appears in the Aug. 13 issue of Sports Illustrated in the “Faces in the Crowd” section. Cressy, who will report to campus along with the rest of the soccer team Friday, led her under-17 U.S. youth soccer team to a national title earlier this month, earning the Golden Boot as the most outstanding player of the tournament.

The 5-foot-5 forward scored a pair of goals to power her Eagles SC team to a 3-2 triumph over the Dallas Texans 90 Red in the U-17 Girls Championship match. This marked the second youth soccer national championship for Cressy, who also won a national title in the U-14 division.

Cressy and the Jayhawks will open the 2007 season at the University of Hawaii on Aug. 31 at 12 a.m. CST.
