Great Falls Soccer Players Thank Abby Wambach on National TV

Posted: Updated:

Before U.S. Soccer Star Abby Wambach played the final game of her career last night, Fox Sports gave all 50 states the chance to say thank you to Abby. They were using the hashtag #ThanksAbby to promote the opportunity. But there was only a select number of states that would actually air their video during the tribute before the game.

Great Falls was chosen to say thank you to Abby on National Television. The Electric City Soccer Club asked ABC/FOX Montana's Derek Opina to film the thank you video last week and Fox Sports chose the video to be in the Broadcast. Thunderbolts Soccer Players Ellie McCluey, Kaelyn Ellis and Avrie Costley were some of the players that got to say thank you to Abby.

"It made me feel really cool because I've never had a conversation with Abby Wambach, says Thunderbolts players Ellie McCluey. "So it kind of made me feel like I was talking to her when I said that."
