You may have never heard the name Santia Deck before, but just know that she has made history after she signed a multimillion-dollar contract to become the face of the new Women’s Football League Association (WFLA) which is planning to debut in 2021.
Deck, who is known as the “Queen of Abs,” has been a successful track star, rugby player and flag football player, will play for the WFLA’s Los Angeles franchise.
Deck also carries a massive following on social media, and became a celebrity fitness trainer before publishing a book and multiple fitness DVDs.
“I have had many ups and downs in the sports world, but to know that I’m now the highest-paid female football player to date only confirms God always has a plan,” Deck said in a statement.

The teams include the New Orleans Melody, Nashville Honey Bees, Atlanta Amazons, Miami Jewels, Charlotte Cruise, Washington Widows, New York Stars, Boston Gypsies, Chicago Breeze, Detroit Freeze, Philadelphia Assassins, Milwaukee Queens, Baltimore Belles, Pittsburgh Vixens, Cleveland Captains, Birmingham Bombshells, Seattle Reign, San Francisco Cranes, San Diego Waves, Las Vegas Devils, Phoenix Burns, Minnesota Shield Maidens, OKC Lightning, Salt Lake Lillys, Denver Pumas, Dallas Diamondbacks, Houston Shooters, Arkansas Mockingbirds, Portland Pirates, Kansas City Red Feathers, Albuquerque Angels and the Fames.
