Briana Scurry

Briana Scurry is a studio analyst for ESPN and a goalkeeper for the United States Women’s National Team.

Scurry joined ESPN in March 2011 to cover the FIFA Women’s World Cup Germany and, through her extensive sports coverage, obtained the National Association of Black Journalists’ Sam Lacy Award.

She is also an advocate for awareness on women’s brain health, focusing on traumatic brain injuries because of her concussion in 2010, which lead to her retirement. Prior to her injury, she played three seasons as starting goalkeeper and captain for the Atlanta Beat, as well as winning the 1999 World Cup and two Olympic gold medals.

Because of her role in women’s soccer and advocacy work, Scurry was inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame in 2017. She is currently Assistant Coach for the Washington Spirit and Technical Advisor for the Washington Spirit Academy.
