Becca Longo Could Be The First Female NFL Player

The offensive coordinator of Adams State University, Josh Blankenship, visited Longo to express their interest in her playing for the Adams State Men’s football team. He invited her to come to Colorado to see the campus and learn more about Adams State and its football program. Before taking him up on his offer, Longo did her own research on the school and liked what she saw. Her father, Bob, was also researching the school, the football program, and its coaches. Bob Longo understood that his daughter’s unique role as a female football player opened her up to potential ridicule, harassment, and mockery. He hoped his daughter would end up in a situation where coaches, athletic directors, and administrators would be cognizant and encouraging of her situation. He said in an interview, “I wanted her to be coached by someone who had daughters. Coach Rosenbach has two great daughters. That sold me.”
