Older brother Daniel Kerr found great success in Aussie Rules football.
He later played 220 AFL games with West Coast Eagles, and Kerr wanted to follow in his footsteps with a professional sporting career.

Kerr switched from Australian Rules football to soccer at the age of 12, and just three years later made her debut for the Matildas as a substitute in a match against Italy, when she was just 15.
Playing for the Perth Glory in the Australian W-League, Kerr’s impressive performances there, and later in Sydney, earned her a move to the USA in 2013.
Meanwhile, millions of soccer fans cheered for Sam on Wednesday night, when she scored a goal against England in the semi-final, but unfortunately they later lost to 3-1 to the Lionesses.
