And in college my neighbor had tried out she was a model.
And they had tryouts couple months prior to that.
So she adds that he'd be perfect for this and they sent me an email couple months later having the open tryouts and I went out.

Getting by with the with there's been athletic but now you really have to know how to play football and it's very demanding of your body -- If you don't believe -- -- -- -- -- watch -- game in.
You know you can answer that for yourself.
Now a little bit of your passion for the sport -- comes out because I hear you have a loved.
For Ray Lewis you really respect Ray Lewis what is it about his game that you look up to -- and I I -- you do is dance and everything right.
Why did the make them let them dance but Ray Lewis he's.
He's either great leader and he's one of the you know one of the greats that have played the game so.
You know just being so passionate about it I had that same drive as him.
And so a lot of girls do competitors themselves to him but again if you just watch how -- play and how my passion comes out when -- have to make a great hit.
It's similar to -- so of course I a you know I wanna be like him -- -- It's only a matter of time in knots that's a very great person today compare myself to -- -- I've got you know pretty big shoes to fill in the -- -- I wanna be the Ray Lewis mail now.

Grew to love football I even played a little bit and high and high school.
And it was kind of wrath try to be the kicker and your older brother is on the team as well so -- I it's kind of stuck to soccer after -- But I don't know it was just some in the bowel.
Women weren't allowed to play football that it made me want to play even more and so when I have this opportunity.
Said not only play football but.
Do it in a way where I can still be beautiful and still you know be sexy out there it's just it's the best of both worlds though.
I mean is that sort of your message -- -- you have a lot of people that are watching this.

Are you into what the fact that they're also women and young girls that are perhaps looking up -- Monique and wanted to be.
The next kind of -- fellow linebacker like fear is that is that something you think about.
Yeah of course you know we that's what we've created the mean change from -- to legends.
We want to lose that focus on just sex appeal we want people to start focusing on how athletic we aren't there.
And so what we're wearing the two piece baiting suit.
You know you see beach women's volleyball no one judges then because of what -- -- you see the gymnastics -- this I mean there -- one piece but those are things that people really don't look at.
But we're trying to.
To steer people in the right direction that where athletes.
