Breaking Lines talks with Thorn Rocky Rodríguez about her new challenges in Portland

Amid an offseason of major acquisitions, Raquel Rodríguez's could prove one of the most important.

One of the most accomplished players in Costa Rican soccer history, Rodríguez spent the first four years of her professional career with Sky Blue FC, establishing herself as one of the more versatile midfielders in the National Women's Soccer League. Following a winter trade, she's relocated to Portland, where she's adapting to life in a new city and with a new club.

On Wednesday, Breaking Lines caught up with the former Mac Hermann Trophy winner to talk about Penn State connections, her time in New Jersey, and why she feels a new challenge in Portland is exact what her career needs, right now.
