Biografia completa di Tobin Powell Heath da 

Her freshman year at UNC in 2006, the dorm Heath lived in had a soccer field right outside. “We’d always kind of end up out there at some point, whatever hour it was. At one or two in the morning, we’d go turn on the lights and play,” says Heath. “That was the story of our class, my group of friends; we always wanted to play, anytime, anywhere. That was our culture.” Their first visit to campus, the new soccer freshmen skipped orientation, where you pick out classes and pick up your laptops, and headed out to the field.

Fetzer Field (UNC’s game field) always had a sign posted that read “CLOSED,” but the friends always snuck in anyway. They also played in the dorm hallways, “even people who didn’t play soccer wanted to play; it was so fun.” They played in the parking garage, using trash cans as goals. They even snuck out onto the game field at midnight, several hours after winning the national championship. “Even though we’d just won this great thing, even though our season had ended in the best possible way, we still didn’t want it to be over,” remembers Heath with a grin.

Tobin’s known not only for her free-flowing style on the field, but also for her vagabond approach toward the world. She has no set home and instead prefers to drift from place to place, visiting one coast and then the other, hopping from one friend or family member’s house to the next. She’s got a few bags of her stuff at her sister’s house, a few bags of stuff at her parents’ house. “When people are like, ‘Yeah, you can come anytime you want,’ I literally come any time I want. I guess most people hear that and are like, ‘uh, thanks,’ and it never happens, but with me, if you invite me somewhere, and I think it would be a cool thing to do, I’ll probably do it. Don’t invite me some place unless you mean it!” laughs Tobin. “And I don’t mind sleeping on a couch or a floor, so that helps.”


In Chapel Hill, sidewalks are made out of brick, which is not ideal for skateboarding – Tobin’s main mode of transportation since she was a kid. “While you’re going down a hill, it’s like, do or die. You’re either going to make it or you’re not. Because a brick might just be missing,” says Tobin.

Anson Dorrance, North Carolina’s Women’s soccer coach, comments, “I lived in abject terror that she was going to get hit.” Which did happen once. The “non-morning person” came down the hill on her way to 8 a.m. class, just hoping a car wouldn’t be there – it was. “It broke my board in two,” recalls Heath.

“We were just trying to keep her tethered to the earth,” laughs Dorrance.
