June 20, 2009

After being named MVP at Leon High School, Williams has been voted the Tallahassee Democrat’s 2009 Big Bend Flag Football Player of the Year.
Two years ago when Sharonta Williams joined Leon’s flag football team, no one knew how vital she would be to the team’s success — that includes Williams herself.
“I’m better than I thought I was,” Williams said. “It’s not just basketball that I’m good at.”

All- Big Bend FF Player of the Year
Sharonta Williams hopes that younger girls who look up to her will follow in her footsteps and break barriers in all aspects of life.
“It feels good to lead by example,” Williams said. “I hope other girls will follow their dreams and not give up.”

The New Generations

January 27, 2009

I grew up in a town where little girls ride horses, study ballet or competed in gymnastics. I played little league t-ball and soccer and was the only girl in either league. If you played sports as a child, I’d bet that you would have a similar story, always having to prove to your coach, and teammates that you were as capable to play.

I saw and ad in 1995 that inspired me to keep playing sports. I realized that I  wasn’t the only girl out there playing sports.  Here is the TV ad that is exactly like the Magazine ad I saw when I was 12.

The ad gets me thinking… in 10 years, how many Woman’s team will be compeating in the IWFFA? The girls of today will be women tomorrow.  How can I encourage girls to play flag football and keep the passion for the sport alive?
