My name is Laurence Thivierge, I’m 23 years old and I currently play for the Montreal Blitz. This is my second season with the Blitz and I play running back and receiver. I started playing for the Blitz because I had couple friends on the team that convinced me to try. I fell in love with the game at my very first practice. I love the physical side, the mental game, the emotional side, the adrenaline, how a football team becomes a family, the feeling I get when I step on the field and how you have to leave it all on the field every single play.

I played soccer from 2004-2014 and I made the switch after I ended my college career. I’m currently studying to become a firefighter and I will be done school in June 2018. I’m really looking forward to playing for Team Canada at the World Championship. I hope this event will give more visibility and popularity to the sport of women’s football so that it can grow around the world. “Champions always do more.”
