This was her rookie year in football and she did good. It will be fun to get to know her and tell her story to you.
Today's post is just a collection of photos of Outlaws, up close. Photos I like. I hope you like them, too.
|Ereka Howard, clowning for the photographer. I don't like the black mouthpieces. When I played|
I don't think we used mouthpieces. Now players use a variety of colors. Who would think the moutpiece
would become a fashion statement. "I matches your uniform,,,"
|Rubi extending arm so Maile|
can walk under.
|See how we pulled off the |
first photo - we cheated.
Call it photetic license.
|Really Maile is the one whose |
outstretched arm about clears
|Perspective gained by having Rubi|
stand in front of Maile.
|Rubi is happy she's not a linewoman. Though I've seen her in games throw blocks at|
defenders who were much larger than she.
|It can be fun having strong|
friends. Rubi riding on
|You don't want to mess with |
|Deidra jumping just before getting the handoff from Cookie.|
|Another play, another jump, followed by another handoff to Deidra.|
|Yet another jump before getting the handoff. Or is this a |
half-jump since the left toe appears to be still on the ground?
|Jumping again, before taking the handoff. This the fourth|
time I saw this action.
Which got me thinking. Why? What was making Deidra so jumpy? The photo above may answer the question. Sometimes running the ball can be unpleasant.
|Running backs often find themselves in unfriendly hands. Deidra here is surrounded by|
Houston tacklers. Maybe it is the memory of getting tackled that makes her
jumpy when she is about to take a handoff into enemy territory?
|Receiver just has to get by one tackler to make it to the|
end zone. She doesn't make it.
|All four feet off the ground. This a devastating hit. This is football the way it was|
designed to be played. Check the reaction of the sideline.
|Charmeine comes down on her feet, keeps her balance...|
|...and strides away from the scene looking for anyone|
else who might want to invade her territory.
|Cookie handing off to #47 Lisa Holewyne.|
|What a mess.|
|Defense messing things up and not very tidy in doing it.|
|At least three Outlaws messing up the Dallas plan.|
|Hmmm. Where to go?|
|If you see Ereka, please ask her to tell us about this play. I don't think that's how it was|
designed in the playbook.
