Details

Joined Gotham in 2019. Wears #12. 5’7 Center back from Coopersburg, PA.


Excerpt

On going from offensive player of the year in college to a career center back:

“You have the whole game in front of you and I think I just found my niche there as well getting a little bit older and reading the game. The game is definitely a lot more competitive, faster, quicker at this level than it is in college. So, I think I perform better as a center back at this level.” Listen to full interview here: https://anchor.fm/soccerovergotham/episodes/Episode-9-Gina-Lewandowski-and-a-massive-point-in-Portland-e14d3f1
