Note the following quotes from Inside Look with Kelly Amonte Hiller presented by Cadillac premiering Tuesday, April 2 on Comcast SportsNet:
AMONTE HILLER on putting pressure on herself:
“I put a lot of pressure on myself in general…that is just my MO. I really believe that pretty much whatever I set my mind to, I am going to do it the best of my ability and I have the confidence that I am going to be successful at it. That is how I came in to this program. I really didn’t know any different.”
AMONTE HILLER on keeping her team focused at all times:
“When people tend to let up, we push the gas pedal. I think that is just my general philosophy and that is why the girls have become strong. We are continuing to push them every day and I think they appreciate that.”
AMONTE HILLER on “flip flop gate” at the White House in 2005:
“We had just won our first national championship. I can tell you I was definitely not looking at what shoes they were wearing and I definitely wasn’t experienced enough to make sure they were wearing the right stuff…we were all just all in the moment.”
AMONTE HILLER on her future at Northwestern:
“For me, this is everything. I feel that I have built this program. This place is very special. I hope that I can continue to push my student-athletes to be strong women and to have some success while they are here, but also in life. For my family, I hope I can do the same…push myself to be a great mom and wife and just be better every day.”
