Why I coach women's football: I live for this sport. My family will tell you that my life revolves around it...NFL, College, WFA. It doesn't matter. Even my wedding will be planned around all football schedules. When I was a player, I loved the contact and the competition...going one on one and daring my opponent to beat me. After I retired, Coach Troy offered me an opportunity I couldn't refuse, to teach women how to play a sport that was foreign to most. It is rewarding to watch these women evolve and understand the game. Other hobbies: Softball, karaoke, and chillin with my peeps

Why I play tackle football: I grew up playing football in the neighborhood with the guys and watching the Green Bay Packers on TV. I have always loved the sport and longed to play. When I found out there was a women's tackle football team I was instantly on board! Bring on the season!
Other hobbies: Softball, snowboarding, playing guitar, traveling, anything athletic or adventurous!

Occupation: Banquet Server at the Amway Grand Hotel
Why I play tackle football: Three reasons: 1. I have always loved to play football in the 'outback' sense of the sport. 2. I loved watching my brothers play football. Since they are both graduated, they are done with football...but I'm not ready to be done with football so I figured I should do something about that. 3. It's another team oriented sport that I get to participate in, and team sports are my ultimate favorite to play and be part of.
Other hobbies: Learning about and living out my faith, rowing, triathalons, half marathons, snowboarding, wakeboarding, guitar, wine (and beer) nights, and spending time with family and friends.

Why I play tackle football: Tackle football is more than a hobby; I've always dreamt of actually doing something I loved but being a girl it always seemed forbidden. I love the toughness of the sport and it goes to show you can do whatever the hell you wanna do in life. Just go for it!
Other hobbies: Cooking, singing, dancing, poetry, making funny videos
