Ivy Tillman Q&A

Who is your biggest supporter?
Besides my mom, dad, and brother, it would be a toss up between my two friends, Eric McWilliams and Mitch Ryan.
If you could have a conversation with anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose? Why?
Harriet Tubman…what she accomplished is absolutely amazing and will always be a source of inspiration for me. I figure if she could do what she did, there isn’t too much I can’t do!
What are your favorite hobbies or special interests?
Watching movies and listening to gospel music.
What is your favorite TV show?
What is your favorite quote?
“Check yourself!”
What was your biggest adjustment to playing women’s football?
Believe it or not, the biggest adjustment for me was getting past knowing that I could possibly hurt someone.
What is your favorite Divas memory?
The first game in team history against the Philadelphia Liberty Belles…that was the beginning of everything, and I knew at that moment that the Divas were going to be something special.
