Lake Highlands’ favorite redhead, Brinkley Field, is in a contest this weekend to be named Most Valuable Player in Greater Dallas for women’s soccer. She’s competing against 17 other outstanding athletes, including three from Highland Park’s newly crowned state champion 4-A squad.

The winner will be chosen by computer voting and will appear on the inside cover of VYPE High School Sports Magazine.

Brinkley, shown here with her family at today’s Exchange Club Scholarship Breakfast, is headed to the University of Texas to play soccer for the Longhorns. She captained the Lady Wildcats and played for Adrian Solca’s National Champion Solar Soccer Club. She was also a NASA intern, Hugh O’Brien Award winner for leadership and a Wildcat Wrangler.

Click on this link to vote for Brinks, as the kids call her, and we’ll hope there’s a magazine cover photo shoot in her future. Multiple voting is permitted, and voting ends at 5pm Monday, May 7.
