Hoff’s Q&A:

What is your nickname, and why? Hailes, Hay, or Hoff. Pretty much whatever is easiest to say on the field

What team member is most likely to be a head coach? I would definitely say that Ashley VanLandingham or Dani Krohn would since they have tons of patience with everyone on the field and know just what to say!

Who is the most famous person you have ever met? I’d say the most famous person I have ever met is Mia Hamm… it was a highlight of my life!

Would you rather win the World Cup or an Olympic gold medal? I would want to win an Olympic Gold medal because I think it would be amazing to represent the USA with all of the other athletes and sports, and it would also be out of this world to get the chance to experience the Olympic Games up close and personal!

What is the worst Christmas gift you’ve ever been given? The worst would have to be the random pajama sets I get at least once every Christmas.

What would people be surprised to know about you? Probably the fact that I’m an absolute germ freak and I hate worms with a passion.

If you had a horse in the Kentucky Derby, what would you name it? Lightning… It even sounds fast!

Who is the best soccer player in the world outside of Messi? Balotelli, but not when he chokes in front of the goal.

Why did you choose your jersey number? It was all that was left, but I still like it because it’s not common!

Who is the most famous person in your cell phone? Renee Balconi

What song gets you pumped up for a game? Ayy Ladies by Travis Porter-It’s my go to jam before a game.

Who is the funniest player on the team? Molly Huber, mostly since we have the same sense of humor and think that everything is funny.

What is your favorite city to visit? New York City, but I don’t think I could live there, I just like to go for the site seeing and shopping!

Who is your favorite American Idol winner? Carrie Underwood or Kelly Clarkson since they have stayed grounded and have made names for themselves.

What is your biggest fear? Being kidnapped or locked in somewhere without a way out!

What is one food you will absolutely not eat? Anchovies…they smell way too disgusting to even think about trying.
