In Her Own Words:
My hopes for women football is to one day my unborn child will be able to get paid to play. If not on a national level at least local. I am coming to my last season four is enough for my body it was a pleasure to be on the USA Team — now I feel complete and happy with walking away.
I’ve been with the love of my life for 10 yrs now — she’s originally from California. We both have lived in for six years and are planning on moving back to California soon.
I received MVP at the 2015 All Star game and that’s one of the best accomplishments thus far for me. Reason being is that no one knew me so getting that kind of recognition was nearly impossible. But when the team needed someone to return the ball, I popped right up to do the job. The end result was two touchdowns on special teams and a 70 yd touchdown catch. That gave me 250 all purpose yards.
After that . . . people knew who I was. Because I’m 136 lbs soaking wet (as they say) I really had to prove myself — it’s something that I’ve been doing all my life so I didn’t mine doing it again.
