In 2015 Becky Sauerbrunn became the first player to win an NWSL end-of-season award for three years running when she was named Defender of the Year. Becky played all 630 minutes for the United States during the 2015 World Cup, and her performances led to Sauerbrunn being named co-captain of the national team, alongside Carli Lloyd, her fellow female footballer of the year nominee.
Becky captains the FC Kansas City and helped them successfully defended their NSWL Championship.
