We are very pleased to announce one of our very own former Mockingbird Valley Select soccer players, Libby Stout has signed with a Professional Football Team in France.
Libby will be guarding the goal for First Division Team FCF Nord Allier Yzeure of Yzeure France.
I had the pleasure of working with Libby at the early age of eight years old. Libby never missed her Goalkeeper Training and generally speaking outperformed the boys within our trainings. She was dedicated and had an incredible passion for the position. She played for MVSC throughout her career.
Libby is a graduate of Manual High School and then continued her career at Western Kentucky University where she set numerous records. In 2011, Libby wrapped up her collegiate career with her third MVP honors in four years. The senior goalkeeper posted 10 shutouts with a 0.65 goals against average and an .841 save percentage. Stout holds WKU's single-season records for wins and shutouts, as well as the career marks for wins, shutouts, and goals against average. A two- time captain, Stout was awarded the ROTC Leadership Award. She finished her storied WKU career ranked second all-time in NCAA Division 1 women's soccer with 39 career shutouts.
Libby can be followed via You Tube throughout her season.
I would like to thank GoalKeeper Trainer Frank Peabody for all of his help and efforts in helping Libby become the Keeper she is today. Much thanks also goes out to Coach Mike Dickey for all of his help in networking and finding Libby a chance across the globe to continue playing this wonderful game of soccer and furthering her career.
As GM of the Select Program, I am very excited for Libby and for our current members throughout our club. Libby's story is a real story and hopefully shows us all that anything is possible and that we are taking the right steps in developing our players.
Congratulations to our Club and most importantly to Libby Stout!
