"In 2007, it was such a special experience," Porcella said. "There's nothing like representing your country, wearing the USA colors, having 'USA Lacrosse' written on your jersey. I really enjoyed that experience. When Wendy said she was stepping down, I talked to her a little bit about it. I definitely wanted to continue with it, and she said, 'Why don't you apply for the head coaching position?' I said, 'Yeah I'd love to. I'd love to follow in her footsteps.'"
