Trailblazing Running Back Jen Welter Becomes The First Female Professional Football Player EVER! And She Gets TACKLED! Watch HERE!
Does anyone know where we can get our hands on a Texas Revolution jersey?? Because we need one, NOW!!!
Jen Welter is making headlines and breaking down barriers left and right as she became the FIRST female running back in professional football history when she joined the 8-on-8 indoor football league!!
And she's not just standing on the sidelines either! In fact, just this weekend the 5'2" 130-lb sprinter made her professional debut against the North Texas Crunch, and right off the bat, she proved she can hang with the boys!
Jen talked about getting tackled for the first time in her debut, saying:
"I said, 'Is that all you got?' They were getting all alive and I had to say something. I didn't want them to think I was intimidated."
Wow! That's pretty badass if you ask us!!
Jen's had three goal-line carries for a collective loss of one yard in her very first game, but the stats aren't what's really important! All that matters is Jen proved she could get hit not once, not twice, but THREE times and get right back up!!
The boys better watch their backs out there, because it looks like this girl is here to stay!!
Ch-ch-check out some videos of Jen's first game (below)! (You'll know who she is when you see her get tackled!)
