She doesn't look fearsome, does
she? But there's an aura about her.
I keep my distance. (This photo
was shot with my telephoto lens
from a safe distance.)
This isn't one of my player profiles. I've never met Tara. Seen her on the field a lot but we've never talked. I've told you I'm kinda shy. I didn't even know her name until I saw the photo on the Outlaws website.
So I've been quietly hanging around shooting action photos, some of which were Tara. I do find her interesting. She might make a good subject for a player profile. If you see her, ask her if she'd be willing to talk with me. I'd ask her myself but I'm shy.
Tara is #33 and generally lines up on the right side of the defensive line. She's not small but not among the bigger players in the league. So she often is facing blockers who have a substantial weight advantage.
|Tara often lined up against blockers who were|
much bigger than she.
|Yes, holding is illegal. Wonder if the official saw|
the foul. Difficult to catch the runner when you're being held.
|Doubling up on Tara. Makes it tough to get into the backfield.|
|A lot of gray jerseys between Tara and the quarterback.|
|Fighting off two blockers. When two are blocking Tara, another Outlaw may go unblocked.|
|A big challenge for a line player to chase down a |
fleet-footed running back.
|Gotcha! Gonna take the ball while I take |
|Somehow the runner managed to hang onto the ball. But she definitely is on the ground. |
See why Tara intimidates me?
