Forward/Midfielder/Defender Cody Newman

When Cody is not competing for the Fury or for the U.S. Youth National Teams, she stars for the Albertson Fury '89. The Bellerose resident studies at Benjamin Cardozo High School where she is an honor roll student.

"Cody has tremendous ability on the ball. A fantastic engine with vision and top-class technique to go with it," commented Long Island Fury head coach Paul Riley. "Very good in one-on-one situations, she can play a multitude of positions and her commitment to Duke for the fall of 2008 has given her more reason to continue her fantastic training."

At a soccer showcase for college coaches in 2007, Cody converted an audacious chip shot over the goalkeeper from 25 yards away, helping lead the Albertson Fury '89 to a 5-1 victory. Cody was thrilled to be invited to her first national team camp and remembers the phone call two years ago vividly.

"I saw the phone and it said Home Depot, so I told my brother (Jesse) to answer the phone," Cody said, thinking the caller ID indicated a sales call from the hardware superstore. "I hear him say U.S. National Team? Hold on, I think she's doing homework. I was like, 'Are you kidding me!?' "

Cody helped lead the Fury to the WPSL national title in its first year in the league. She was 16 and playing against opponents much older than herself. En route to winning the title, Cody was fouled by Chinese national team captain Ouying Zhang from WPSL side River Cities Futbol Club. The foul led to the only goal of the championship match, and is a foul Cody's mother loves to gloat about. "She thought that was so cool," Cody said as she laughed.
