Toni Harris Nfl
Toni Harris wants to be the first female player in the NFL, no matter the route that requires, and if she doesn’t get there, she’ll at least know her efforts were worthwhile.
“There isn’t a path but I want to make sure I’m paving a way for myself to get there,” Harris said on SI Now Live. “And if I can’t get there, I want to make sure the next little girl can get there. I want to open up some type of doors for women to do it. It does not say ‘Men’s National Football League.’ It just says ‘National Football League.’ There’s no rules that women can not be there, there’s just no woman who’s tried to get there. But I want to be that woman who’s the first NFL player.”
Toni started playing football as a young girl in Detroit but was eventually kicked off her team because she was a girl. She turned to gymnastics and even cheerleading but what she really wanted was to play football.
In high school, Harris was named homecoming queen and admits she likes dresses more than pants. That might be one of the reasons people constantly tried to talk her out of playing football.
“All the time. They still do. People tell me like ‘oh it’s cool you play football… but you’ll never make it… and you shouldn’t be doing it.’ ”
