Interview Done By Mike Wilkerson
MW: Please introduce yourself?
HF: Heather “Rockstar” Furr.
MW: How did you get involved with the LFL?
HF: I tried out back in the summer of 2010. I found out about tryouts through a friend and was convinced to go. Beyond that, I had no previous football experience other than playing football with the boys at recess or throwing the ball around with my dad.
MW: What made you want to play in the LFL?
HF: Honestly, I really didn’t know what to expect heading into tryouts themselves and wasn’t sure if this was really for me. When I got to the tryouts and found out how REAL this football was, and how seriously it was taken, I knew this was the perfect fit.
MW: What other team have you played for? And how was it?
HF: I have played for the West All-Fantasy team and also the Saskatoon Sirens up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Both were amazing experiences.
MW: Why did the LFL change from the Lingerie Football League to Legends Football League?
HF: The league changed its’ name to be more marketable overall. It’s the same football and very similar uniforms, it was simply to taken away the ‘Lingerie’ aspect of the name.
MW: How many teams are in the league?
HF: There are 12 total teams in the US, 4 in Canada, and 4 in Australia.
MW: What are their names?
HF: Well, if you go to http://www.lflus.com you can get all 12 teams.
MW: What do you think of the Canada and Australia expansion?
HF: I love the idea of the LFL expanding to other countries. It’s such an amazing league and to extend the opportunity to play 7-on-7 tackle football to other athletes worldwide is such a great thing.
MW: Would you ever want to play for teams in those leagues?
HF: I love playing in the US and have always lived
MW: How many games will you play?
