Interesting Football Stat About Girls…

Just last week I penned a post called Sports is Family. Long story short, I said that football is no longer king because girls will never be able to play in the professional league.

While that may be true, the number of girls playing high school football continues to rise according to this story  from USA Today!

According to the National Federation of State High School Associations, the total number of athletes taking part in 11-player football in 2015-16 increased by 80 to 1,085,272. The increase can be attributed to more girls participating. This past year, a record 1,964 played football, which was up from 1,565 the year before.  -USA TODAY

I love that and just had to share.

Ellie Jacqueline at 17-months old at Joppatowne High School football game. Just think, in fifteen years she may opt to play on the football field. How cool is that?
