Reneka Watkins Q&A

Who is your biggest supporter?
My sons…they have been through thick and thin with me!
If you could have a conversation with anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose? Why?
My mother…I didn’t get a chance to really know her, because she died when I was really young. I would love to tell her about her three beautiful grandchildren and how I came out okay despite not having my own mother in my life.
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Sweet, mighty, courageous.
What was the first sport you ever played?
Track and field.
How did you hear about women’s football?
Eight years ago, a co-worker introduced me to his wife, who was one of the owners of the Baltimore Burn. She gave me a flyer, and I’ve been hooked on the idea of women’s football ever since.
