Player Spotlight | Leiah Goedde

By Ohio Elite Staff, 09/01/18, 9:00AM EDT


Do not let her small stature fool you.  When it comes to Leiah Goedde, she routinely makes play after play out of the air.  Her snap-header goal against Lakota West recently earned her ECC Player-of-the-Week honors.

With a sister that is now part of the #OESAlumni, Leiah, is making her own mark on the field.  The 2004 ECNL player has big goals for her future in the sport.

Ohio Elite recently sat down with the Loveland High School freshman to find out what she is all about.
