On being part of Team USA

"I remember it like it was yesterday. Putting on the U.S. jersey for the first time, even though it was for the youth national team, was one of my best memories of all time ... Training at that level with the best kids ... it's really special. It's really that moment when you realize, 'wow, I am in the pipeline, I can go to the Olympics someday."
