Houston Dash use No. 2 pick on Kealia Mae Ohai, sister-in-law of Brian Cushing – Sports Update

Almost five years after her brother-in-law Brian Cushing was taken by the Texans with the No. 15 pick of the NFL draft, speedy University of North Carolina forward Kealia Ohai was selected by the Houston Dash with the second overall pick the National Women’s Soccer League.

“We wanted to bring Kealia here since day one,” Dynamo and Dash president Chris Canetti said. “I am glad that everything lined up perfectly for us to get her. She is an exciting player and will be a great asset to our organization and community.”

Ohai’s older sister Megan, who played soccer at USC, is married to Cushing.

The former U.S. U-20 women’s national team forward will give the Dash offense speed to spread opposing defenses.

“Very excited about Kealia!” Dash coach Randy Waldrum said in a text to the Houston Chronicle before the second round of the draft. “She’s fast, athletic, can get behind defenses and can stretch the opponent! Will be a great addition.”
