"My teammates uplifted me a lot," said Meighan Simmons.
That's certainly out there, and I'm not objecting to it at all. But it struck me, because I'd've said (in the unlikely event I were to say it) "they lifted me up".
I think it shows she looks at that as a verb from the noun uplift, rather than the noun coming from the (phrasal) verb to lift up. Which is cool.
