Shannon Whitehead Q&A

Who is your biggest supporter?
My little sister! Through thick and thin, she is always there with words of wisdom and positive encouragement. She inspires me to be a better me, each and every day.
If you could have a conversation with anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose? Why?
My great-aunt…she passed away in 2006, but she was one of the most important people in my life. I would love to talk to her one more time. She was very influential, especially during my younger years. I would love to hear what she would say after seeing me all grown up.
Who is your favorite NFL player? Why?
Russell Wilson, hands down…I have a lot of respect for the athleticism he exhibits on the field and the character that he exhibits off of it. He is an incredible athlete and a good role model.
What is your favorite movie?
Easy one…Pain and Gain! This is the one movie I can watch over and over again.
What is your favorite TV show?
Sons of Anarchy…well, at least it was before the series ended!
What is your favorite food?
Grilled chicken…everyone who knows me knows that I eat grilled chicken by the pound – literally.
What is your favorite book?
Dark Places, by Gillian Flynn…it is an amazing page-turner and definitely my favorite book right now.
Why do you want to play women’s football?
I wanted to challenge my athleticism. I have played organized basketball, softball, rugby, and flag football, so why not tackle football? Life is all about the challenges. Football is physically and mentally challenging, so it just seemed like the right thing to try.
What does it mean to you to be a D.C. Diva?
Everything! To have the opportunity to not only learn and master a new sport but to be surrounded by dedicated coaches and incredible teammates – it is a very unique experience. It is more than just a team…it’s a sisterhood.
