Christie Pearce 40 Yard Dash
The 40-yard dash is a sprint covering 40 yards. It is primarily run to evaluate the speed and acceleration of American football players by scouts, particularly for the NFL Draft but also for collegiate recruiting.
A player’s recorded time can have a heavy impact on his prospects in college or professional football. This was traditionally only true for the “skill” positions such as running back, wide receiver, and defensive back, although now a fast 40-yard dash time is considered important for almost every position.
The origin of timing football players for 40 yards comes from the average distance of a punt and the time it takes to reach that distance. Punts-average around 40 yards in distance from the line of scrimmage, and the hangtime (time of flight) averages approximately 4.5 seconds.
Therefore, if a coach knows that a player runs 40 yards in 4.5 seconds, he will be able to leave the line of scrimmage when a punt is kicked, and reach the point where the ball comes down just as it arrives.

Christie Pearce Retirement
Christie Pearce has told Adweek she is ready to retire. She said that there had been a lot of younger players in the back line, so it was about getting them prepared and ready for the season and next season so she could step away from the team in a better place than she found it.
That team is Sky Blue FC which Pearce has captained throughout the five-year existence of NWSL. She was also a founding member of the club when it launched with WPS in 2009 and famously took over as a player/coach with two games remaining and led the club on an improbable run to the WPS Championship. The legend only grew days later when it was revealed Pearce was pregnant with her second child during the closing weeks of the season.
Christie Pearce Soccer
After college, Pearce played for Central Jersey Splash and New Jersey Lady Stallions, in 1997 and 1998 respectively, of the W-League.
In 2001, she was selected as a member of New York Power, a professional soccer team in Women’s United Soccer Association. In the first year, Christie played every minute of the first 18 games until tearing her anterior cruciate ligament, sidelining her for the rest of the season.
Christie bounced back to play in 1699 minutes over 19 games in 2002, and another 18 games in 2003 in addition to her national team duties. Shortly after concluding its third season, the WUSA suspended all operations. In anticipation of an eventual relaunch, WUSA preserved its rights in the team names, logos, and similar properties.
The next attempt at women’s professional soccer in the United States kicked off in 2008 under the name of Women’s Professional Soccer. On September 16, 2008, the initial WPS player allocation was conducted and Pearce was chosen as captain for New Jersey’s Sky Blue FC with fellow US Women’s National Team players Heather O’Reilly and Natasha Kai.
Christie Pearce has represented the United States at 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011, and 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup finals, in addition to 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012 Summer Olympics.
After training with the United States women’s national soccer team during her senior year at Monmouth, she switched to playing as a defender. Pearce’s first game was February 28, 1997, versus Australia. She tallied her first national team goal on May 2, 1997, in a match versus South Korea.
Pearce started 16/18 games in her first season and finished with two goals and three assists. The following year, Pearce helped her team to its first undefeated season and led the United States to gold in the 1998 Goodwill Games by starting in both matches.
Pearce played 2540 minutes with the national team in 2000, including five games at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. The team finished with the Silver medal. In 2001, Pearce tore her anterior cruciate ligament and missed a majority of the limited national team season.
Pearce was back with the team for two training camps in 2002 but focused on recovering from her surgery. In 2003, she started in 15/17 national team games and all four World Cup matches to lead her team to the Bronze medal.
