Remember a few years ago when having a female referee was such a big deal to a bunch of people?
Magnify that times 10 when you put one on an actual team that is in charge of putting points on the board and can determine the outcome of a game.
A simple visit to the Philadelphia Eagles practice and nailing a 55-yard kick was enough for a team to contact Carli Lloyd to see if she would be interested in kicking during a Thursday night game.
Unfortunately, she has other obligations with the USWNT, otherwise, she likely would’ve done it.
Multiple teams are so impressed with her kicking ability that she is now “seriously considering” taking her talents to the NFL.
