The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced that it plans to recognize the WFA National Championship Team in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Museum each year. The first weekend of August will not only be the weekend for the prestigious gold jacket ceremony with the new class of Hall of Fame inductees, but it will now be the time when the WFA National Championship team MVP will be on display. This year Allison Cahill received this honor for her stellar performance leading the Boston Renegades to their third straight WFA National Championship Title. Cahill also became the first Quarterback lead a women’s tackle football team to 6 national titles (2010, 2011, 2014, 2018, 2019, 2021), surpassing the mark of five set by Kim Grodus of the Detroit Demolition (2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007).
“We are excited that our players are being honored by the Pro Football Hall of Fame,” stated Lisa King, Commissioner of the WFA. “This type of support shows the hard work our athletes have put in to playing this sport is being recognized by the most prestigious institutions in professional football.”
