Tiffani Horne Q&A

Who was your childhood idol? Why?
Phylicia Rashad…I wanted to be Clair Huxtable as a child. She was beautiful, smart, successful, and loved her family. I wanted to have a family just like the Cosbys when I grew up.
Who are your biggest supporters?
My family and friends.
If you could have a conversation with anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose? Why?
Adolf Hitler…I would want to know how one person could harbor so much hate toward people.
Who is your female sports idol?
Laila Ali.
Who is your favorite NFL player? Why?
Joe Montana…I started watching football with my uncle when I was eight years old, and at that time, Joe Montana was the greatest quarterback around. He always remained calm and cool under pressure, and as a child, I admired that. I have been a 49er fan ever since.
What are your favorite hobbies or special interests?
Watching movies, shopping, and spending time with family.
What is your favorite food?
What is your favorite book
The Color Purple.
Who is your favorite artist?
Frida Kahlo.
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Bold, determined, loyal.
What was the first sport you ever played?
How did you get into women’s football?
I used to play flag football and have always wanted to play tackle, so I thought I would give it a shot.
If you could play any other position, which one would you choose? Why?
Middle linebacker…because they seek and destroy.
Why do you play women’s tackle football?
I have loved football since I was a child, but being a girl, I was never able to play. I wanted to play with the boys but instead my family made me become a cheerleader, which I did enjoy. So I put down my football and picked up my pom poms.
What does it mean to you to be a D.C. Diva?
I tried out for the D.C. Divas back in 2003 and did not make the team. I thought my football hopes were over, so I put it on the shelf for many years. In 2013, I got the itch to give it one more shot before I got too old. I trained and went back to tryouts, and now here I am a D.C. Diva.
