    NCAA.org - One in an occasional series of features about former NCAA student-athletes who went pro in something other than sports. The Division I women's soccer national players of the year from 1996 talk about what they learned from the college experience.

    Cindy (Daws) Mosley - University of Notre Dame


    Then: Daws was a midfielder on Notre Dame's NCAA championship team in 1995 and runner-up squad in 1996, when she was named the Missouri Athletic Club's Player of the Year. She was a two-time All-Big East and two-time Academic All-Big East selection and three-time Academic All-American.

    Now: Mosley is a stay-at-home mom to her four kids in Mt. Prospect, Ill. After playing professionally in Japan for a year, she worked for nine years in marketing in soccer and volleyball for Wilson Sporting Goods. She is married to former Notre Dame football player Emmett Mosley.

    In her words: "I think being able to juggle all of the things you need to juggle within college, it helps you with that skill set in real life. Your school work, your team responsibilities and social aspects - it's multitasking and being able to put them in order of what's most important. Now, you have 10 different people asking you to do something, and everyone things theirs is most important. You have to decide what's important. From college to life, that's probably the No. 1 thing.

    "Your competitiveness, your drive, your hard work - whether you're succeeding at your job or your social life, I think all those things you learn in sports help you in those areas."

    Jennifer Renola - University of Notre Dame

    Then: Renola was in goal for Notre Dame's NCAA title in 1995 and runner-up finish in 1996, when she was named the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Player of the Year. She was an All-Big East Conference selection, a two-time All-American and a two-time Academic All-Big East pick. She finished her career as the Irish's all-time leader in shutouts and goals-against average. Renola earned NCAA Today's Top VIII recognition and NCAA postgraduate scholarship.

    renola.jpegNow: After working for adidas and as an assistant coach at the University of Texas, Renola has worked for Nike the past five years. The Portland, Ore., resident started in marketing and sales and is now in a sales management role for Nike.

    In her words: "Ultimately, it's about being part of a team and kind of understanding that the outcome as a whole is bigger than the sum of its parts. That is comparable to a work environment. The model for business is comparable to a sports team model. How do you get people motivated and get people feeling good about what they're doing.

    "With sports in college, it's all about juggling different things. You just get accustomed to that at an early age. You receive constructive criticism, and that's similar to a work environment. Every year, you get a review about what you did well and what you didn't do well, and (playing NCAA sports) prepared me for that kind of feedback."
