Over the past few years, there have been stories about females playing football and being better than some of the male athletes. Last last week the Wade Hampton football team got a new teammate and her name is Mackenzie Trotter. Trotter shared what drove her to try out for the team when she said, “Last year, right when the fall sports season began, I wanted to play.”  Defensive Back Coach, Justus Serina, stated that, “We will treat her the same as everyone else.” Trotter will be playing safety for the JV team in the 2017-2018 season.

It’s a common misconception that women are not allowed in the sport but  no official statement exists. When asked what her future plans are, women Mackenzie stated that, “I would like to continue doing playing in college but I’m not aiming to be in the NFL or anything like that.”

There is a league for specifically for females called the Women’s Professional Football League (WPFL).  It was founded in 1999 and is  the largest women’s professional football league with teams across the United States. Fifteen teams nationwide competed for a championship in 2006. There are other leagues for women like the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA), the Independent Women’s Football League (IWFL), and the United States Women’s Football League (WSFL). Hopefully Mackenzie Trotter can start a trend at Wade Hampton and have more women play football, not just at Wade Hampton but everywhere.
