With three regular season matches to go, a ticket to the playoffs is very much within reach for Seattle Reign FC. Also possible for them is to secure second place on the table and the perk of hosting an NWSL Playoff semi-final. For that to happen, Seattle has to keep doing what they’ve been doing for a while now, which is play organized and stingy defense. Fullback Alyssa Kleiner is a member of that Seattle Reign FC defense and it’s time to get to know her in the latest episode of “Coffee & Valkyries.”

Another one of the new faces of the Seattle Reign FC is defender Alyssa Kleiner. She joined the team in May and quickly made her debut against rival Portland Thorns FC, where her professional career began. Get to know Alyssa as she talks about playing under her sports hero (hint: think the legendary 99ers), motorcycles, and what it’s like playing alongside the likes of Megan Rapinoe and Jess Fishlock versus against them.
