|Off the field Shadana is a delightful funny un-serious young|
woman. On the field she gets serious. furrowed brow, focused
eyes, stiff arming would-be tacklers.
She told me by Facebook message that she's taking a season off to spend more time with her daughter Makayla. So I've decided to do an abbreviated profile. Few words, lots of photos.
Shadana "Bo Peep" Hurd joined the Outlaws in 2006. At the time she was living in San Antonio where she "had great job with great company, Medi-fit, setting up fitness programs for large corporations." She taught classes, was personal trainer, set up informational visits at the facility about diabetes, breast cancer. Then she heard about the Outlaws.
She came to Austin for tryouts. She had never played football but, at the University of Texas, San Antonio, she Ran track four years, played basketball for a year and another year at at Garden City in Kansas. She won honors as a collegiate track sprinter. She ran an 11.8 100 Yard dash. Trying out for the Outlaws, she did a 4.7 40 yard dash in borrowed shoes. "I didn’t think to bring shoes, just had tennis shoes, and borrowed Monica’s shoes."
|If Shadana gets a step on you you aren't going to catch her.|
|They will not catch her.|
|I suspect this is a broken play. Shadana eludes the tacklers and|
races around the left end for a good gain.
|She is strong. No way the leaping tackler is going to get her down.|
