In her own words:
I’ve been a huge football fan since I was roughly 4 years old. I wanted to play for my local high school, then Notre Dame, and then I wanted to be a receiver for John Elway on the Denver Broncos. I picked the Broncos because they had a horse on their helmet, and what little girl doesn’t love horses?
As I got older I realized that I would never be allowed to play football. I got into soccer, softball, and basketball. During my sophomore year in college I heard about a women’s football league that was starting up. The closest team that I could find from my college in New Hampshire was the Connecticut Crush. I quit the softball team, and drove 3+ hours each way to practice 3 times a week to be part of the team. I would leave campus around 3pm, after all of my classes, practice from 7:30-10pm in Hartford CT, and make it back to campus in NH by 1-2am. My car had no air conditioning, and halfway through the season the stereo died. I didn’t care. I had an entire football team full of new family members, and I was living my dream. It was the best thing I ever did. I’m thankful for every day that I get out onto the field.
