Shellie Bahena Q&A

Who is your favorite NFL player? Why?
Dallas Cowboy Emmitt Smith…the all-time leading rusher. Go Cowboys!
How did you get into women’s football?
I have always wanted to play since I was a kid. I only got to play with my brother. Once they knocked the wind out of me in Junior High, my mom made me only play touch.
What was your biggest adjustment to playing women’s football?
The workouts…I need to get into shape!
If you could play any other position, which one would you choose? Why?
I am open and willing to play any position I am told to play. I am a fast learner and will practice hard. Offense, defense, special teams…anywhere. I feel I can run pretty well.
What does it mean to you to be a Diva?
To be a part of a powerful football team. Representing and being an example for young ladies to follow. Giving them inspiration to follow their dreams, no matter how insane people think they may be.
