Atlanta United Features Riley Macdonald '23

Atlanta United's Behind the Stripes blog recently profiled Galloway ninth grader Riley Macdonald for her dedication to her hometown team.

A member of the Resurgence supporters group, Riley expresses her love of the game in a unique and creative way. 

“You see people expressing themselves with their outfits or in their actions to express how much they care about this team. I saw people at games with multiple scarves or different hats and color coordinating their outfits," she says. "I’ve always liked art, but I am not very good at it on paper. So, I figured I might as well try it on my face!”

Riley spends 4-5 hours applying intricate face paint as a show of support for her hometown team. Read the entire article and check out pictures of her amazing work here!
