Portland Thorns forward Morgan Weaver has become a formidable threat to opponents after her breakout 2022 season. What stands out in a league filled with great forwards is a striking dichotomy: she is ferocious on the pitch, but plays with a palpable joy.
As one fan aptly put it, she’s got that dawg in her — a slang phrase for mentally tough players who show up in big moments.
“I always want to win… I think just me being the best is going to bring the best out of the team as well,” Weaver told The Equalizer last week. “I’m never not going to work hard. It’s always been a thing since I was a little kid and my dad put it in my head, ‘you need to work hard always.’ And I’ve never stopped believing in that.”
