What are the limits for Junior Shelby Vaughan in Norway?
Every time she seems to hit her head, she extends it to another level, so that’s the problem. From being national champion with her club North FC last summer to becoming an All-Ohio player this fall, Vaughan continues to set the bar high every time.
Earlier this year, she enrolled at Michigan State University to continue her soccer career and was recently selected to the 05 USYS ODP National Team. It is the United States Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program, created in 1982, to identify the highest performing soccer players to help the United States National Team continue its success.
“Shelby is a different kind of player,” said North FC manager Attila Cizar. No one else is as competitive as you.”
Playing in tournaments within the state and then in other states, she was selected to go to Illinois. , where they played against the South, West and East regions. The top players across the country were then selected to form one ODP national team.

She learned that the team made the team in the mail on Thursday after their heavy basketball loss to Smithville.

She is honed, works hard and has determination that most kids don’t have. , wants the ball, and that mentality sets her apart from other kids.
“When you have the right player, that one player can make a difference in the world as long as that player is the right player. There is no doubt that it makes players better.”
As for going to England, a country that takes football very seriously and has an environment like no other, Vaughan is thrilled about the opportunity. It’s a look at different styles of football, from more direct football, to where the build-up is more continuous, to where the pressure is added through directness through attack.
“Very cool, I’ve never been to England before,” Vaughan said. “So I’ve never seen a competition there, so it’s going to be really good and I’m really excited to experience it.
For Vaughn, it will be another part of an already brilliant resume as she continues to cement herself not only locally, but statewide and abroad.
