TEXARKANA, TX (KSLA) -

Texas High School senior, Caroline Byrd, is "pitch perfect" when it comes to playing soccer. Every time she steps onto a soccer pitch she finds the back of the net.

The senior, who led her team to a second round appearance in the state tournament, is a natural goal scorer.

"I played defense for a long time and then when I came to high school my coach put me as a forward and that's when I just really just loved it," said Byrd.

She set two records at her high school: one for most goals in a season with 27 and one for most goals in a career with 70.
