New Jersey has a great track record of producing women’s soccer players who shine on the biggest of stages.

It’s very possible that Melina Rebimbas is next.

Rebimbas, a senior at Rutgers Prep, is just days away from suiting up for the Under-17  U.S. Women’s National Team in the U-17 FIFA World Cup in India. A dynamic player who also doubles as a passionate leader, Rebimbas is quickly emerging as one of the United States’ premier youth soccer players.
