||18 – Kate Peabody – Like her fellow starting attack Jessica Smude, Kate Peabody is another Spartan with great talent trying to find her focus in the collegiate game. Peabody, who hails from Fenton and prepped at Flint Powers, had a stellar high school career and spent much of last year finding her way in the WCLL, although she did not join the team until eight games into the 2012 season. The biggest change for Peabody this past fall was moving from midfield to attack. Peabody has the potential to be one of the best offensive players on the Spartans and this fall provided some insight to just how successful she could be as MSU’s third leading goal scorer in fall ball. Peabody is the team’s vice president. “I know I’ve said this before about Jessica, but it applies to Kate as well, she’s just a great young lady, but I know with Kate what’s possible on the field, so sometimes I push a bit. She has all the tools to be a great player, and All American potentially…..and while I don’t want that statement to be added pressure for her, I know she’s fully capable of taking over a game……I want Kate to play to her potential because it would be fun to watch and I know the move to attack will help facilitate that process…..watch out this spring for Kate Peabody,” said Greg Normand, Michigan State’s head coach.
