Playing tackle football was the next logical step for me as a flag football player. Instead of travelling to Rochester to play, someone started a team here so I played. I fell in love with the sport at my first practice in Rochester. The strategy, the skill, the mental toughness involved challenged me in a way no other sport ever has. Tackle football provides women a chance to play what I consider to be the ultimate team sport. They must overcome mental and physical challenges. It is a sport that every type of woman can play. We are lucky to be involved in tackle football. Not everyone has the ability to play, coach, or be involved. It is truly special.
I’ve been coaching football for over 10 years and finding the women’s game has opened up a new level of understanding and love for this game.
I had the opportunity to play football for 18 years, from Peewee all the way to the professional level. I had amazing coaches along the way so now it is my turn to give back and share my experiences and knowledge of the game with others.
Equipment Manager & MT
I have been volunteering with football since 1990. The ladies' football team had nobody helping them with equipment, running the water on the field and just other general tasks so I volunteered to help them because I love what I do.
