Coach Bobbie was one of my early interviews. She said "We're not women trying to be men; we just want to play a game that is typically deemed for men."
That was a great answer, one she repeated to me a week ago. But I'm getting a little ahead of myself.
The Outlaws share a practice field with the Central Texas Wolf Pack, a men's football team made up of firefighters and law enforcement officers, part of the National Public Safety Football League. The Wolf Pack has the field for the two hours before the Outlaws 10:30 a.m. time slot.
Now I want you to understand I've been an Outlaws fan for many years. I have a high regard for the talent of these ladies, Ski, Monica, Shadana, Soho. When I saw the guys leaving the field as the Outlaws arrived, I had this silly idea. Fortunately I didn't share it with anyone. I decided to keep quiet until I had a chance to meet some of the Wolf Pack.
|See the football. It is where the tackling dummy was.|
When this guy hit the dummy he almost broke it in two.
|He's a big guy. Slightly airborne. Note the football. He has |
moved the dummy, too. The dummy is airborne.
|Love this shot. Focus not perfect but|
still you see his elevation.
