Two Truths & A LIE
— I have seven sisters
— I have my undergrad degree
— I flew to Amsterdam for a concert.
In Her Own Words:
I have a very supportive family expanding from both Southern/Northern California and Chicago. Headed by my mother, Rhonda Davis, I can probably count on one hand the amount of home games she has missed in 7 years. Even when I played for two seasons in Southern California, my mother would fly out for games. She is excited for my final season in Chicago and even more excited to travel to Vancouver, BC to cheer on Team USA along with other members of my family. Also, my supportive girlfriend and best friend, Kristie who is a die-hard all-things-Michigan fan (except for MU lol) admits that the Chicago Force is the only Chicago team she roots for–I’m still working on that!
My women’s tackle football experience spans over 7 years in two different states including two seasons (2009-2010) with the Southern California Breakers and the last five seasons (2013-2017) with the Chicago Force.
Honors: 2010 National Team USA Selection (did not play), 2017 National Team USA Selection, WFA All-American 2013-2016, 2016 Defensive MVP, 2013-2015 Defensive Line MVP for the Chicago Force
I enjoy comics and everything superheroes with my favorite superhero being Flash. My game day superstition involves wearing the same DC Comics Superheroes underwear, that I have been wearing since joining the Chicago Force the 2013 season…. hahaha gross, I know.
Football has and always will have a special place in my heart. I have had the opportunity to work with USA Football, meeting tons of professional athletes and coaches from around the country. I have had the opportunity to attend the Women’s World Games hosted by the New Orleans Saints which was an amazing lifetime learning experience. This sport has helped me through some of the toughest periods of my life. It is the ONE thing that no one has the ability to take away from me but myself. I will always be indebted to the sport, the forever relationships/bonds created, and to the Chicago Force organization.
