U.S. U-23 Women’s National Team goalkeeper Aubrey Bledsoe was signed by Sky Blue FC as a discovery player in October of 2014. The former Wake Forest University standout also brings professional experience to the team, coming to Sky Blue FC upon completion of a season with Idrettsklubben Grand Bodø of the Norwegian League. While playing at Wake Forest University, Bledsoe was named an NSCAA All-American following her final three years of college, twice receiving third team honors before being named to the second team following her senior season. The Ohio native ranks second all-time in NCAA Division 1 history with 8,692 minutes played, and her 33 shutouts, 0.91 Goals Against Average and 94 games played are all program records at Wake Forest. Highly durable with good shot-stopping ability, Bledsoe was considered by many analysts to be the top goalkeeper available in the 2014 NWSL College Draft. Goalkeeping is certainly in the Bledsoe bloodline as well, as Aubrey’s twin sister, Amber, had a standout college career herself while backstopping Brown University.
