Alexis Brach Q&A

Who was your childhood idol? Why?
I used to be able to do the worm in my Michael Jackson jacket when I was four years old.
Who is your favorite NFL player? Why?
I’ve been a huge fan of Mike Sellers for years…I love his field personality. Ray Lewis is also a favorite – he’s a beast.
What are your favorite hobbies or special interests?
Train, train, and then train some more.
What is your favorite travel location?
Anywhere warm and beachy.
What is your favorite food?
I could eat Thai food every day!
What is your favorite book?
When I have time to read, I like to read anything written by Chelsea Handler.
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Hard-working, competitive, driven.
What are your lifetime aspirations?
To be the best I can be, to help inspire people, and to try and make a difference in someone’s life.
What was the first sport you ever played?
How did you get into women’s football?
I was trying to prove a point…that you should not quit something just because you are scared of getting hurt. I decided to play the most aggressive sport out there, and now I love it.
What was your biggest adjustment to playing women’s football?
Learning offense…I feel I am naturally a defensive player, so shifting my mind to offense is a little difficult at times.
If you could play any other position, which one would you choose? Why?
I really like playing middle linebacker on defense, because I love hitting, the angles, and reading offensive plays. I also like playing tight end, for glory purposes!
What teammate best embodies the Divas spirit?
Donna Wilkinson…given her Diva history and the way she helped me through training camp, she is truly a team mentor for me.
Why do you play women’s tackle football?
No other sports allow me to be aggressive like football.
What does it mean to you to be a D.C. Diva?
It’s empowering and strong.
