Daly, Jacobs Join Auburn Soccer as Early Enrollees
Jan. 11, 2018

AUBURN, Ala. - Head coach Karen Hoppa announced the addition of early enrollees Angeline Daly and Abby Jacobs to the Auburn soccer program Thursday afternoon.

"We are really excited to have these two on campus," Hoppa said. "Angeline is a dynamic center-mid with a wealth of experience and Abby is an athletic, competitive wide player. They are both great additions to our roster. Having them with our team all spring will better prepare them and the rest of the girls for our fall season."

Daly, a midfielder from Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., makes her way to The Plains from Florida State and utilized a redshirt during her freshman season with the Seminoles.

Daly spent her scholastic career at Ponte Vedra High School and helped the Sharks advance to the 2016 state title game with the game-winning goal in the state semifinal. She also competed for Jacksonville FC, where she won the 2015 U.S. Youth Soccer National Championship.

Daly was invited to participate with the U.S. National Team on four occasions and attended the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) Player Development Program (PDP) Camp from 2014-16. She also made the U.S. Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP) International Trip from 2013-16 and participated in the ODP Camp held in Boca Raton, Fla., from 2012-15.

Jacobs, a three-year letterwinner and outside back at Gulf Breeze High School in Pensacola Beach, Fla., totaled 25 points on eight goals and nine assists and was a key piece of a defensive unit that allowed only eight goals in 59 career matches. She helped lead her team to three straight district championships and a pair of regional championship appearances.

Jacobs competed for Alabama FC at the club level ranked third in the nation for assists in the ECNL during the 2015-16 season. She also competed for the Gulf Coast Texans in the Women's Premier League and was the youngest player on the roster when she joined the team at 16 years old. She not only helped the Texans advanced to the national finals in 2017, but also earned a spot on the U.S. Soccer Region III ODP Team thanks to her efforts on the pitch.

Jacobs was also a standout member of the track and field team at Gulf Breeze and competed in the regional finals in the 400-meter dash on a pair of occasions.

Both student-athletes excelled in the classroom as they were each a member of the National Honor Society. Jacobs also graduated top 15 in her class.

Auburn's complete 2018 recruiting class will be announced when the initial signing date for women's soccer begins on Feb. 7.
