Social Media Bio

Presenting our only midwest rookie of the season! This rookie hails out of Columbus, OH and started her ultimate career as a Fighting Goby for Case Western. According to their instagram, a Goby is an evasive, bottom-dwelling fish, just like Sophie! Before joining us on the east coast she dabbled in other women’s club teams Hot Metal and Rival while she was also a member of the 2018 U24 US National Team. On the field, she manages her gangles surprisingly well as she is an intelligent and efficient cutter with huge throws to boot. Off field, she proudly works for WHOOP and promptly outfitted all of brute #whoopsquad with our own neon bands. Sophie can often be spotted wearing at least 3+ WHOOPs at all times. Just don’t ask her for the time though, she can’t help you with that. You might have to pay her to dress up and you might want to think twice before inviting her to eat with your parents as she is a self proclaimed “extremely messy eater.” We still love her so much despite her lack of table etiquette. We proudly present to you #20, Sophie Knowles! Please enjoy this collage of her face #icouldntpickjust1 #jollygiant Click the link on our bio for her full player profile.
