What It's Like to Be a Girl Playing High School Football
Times have changed on the high school football field. The game is no longer just for the boys. Girls are playing football, and they're playing it well.
On the season finale of Season One: High School Football in America, Bella Rasmussen, a senior at Laguna Beach High School in Southern California, talks with The Stadium Talk Podcast about what it's like to be a girl playing high school football, making California history with her two-touchdown game this season and how girls younger than her have responded to her making history (2:30).
Then, Laguna Beach High head coach John Shanahan comes by the show to talk about Bella's role on the team and what this season has been like for Laguna Beach, which won its first CIF title in 76 years this season after we recorded (12:25).
Finally, Tony Adame is joined by former colleague, friend and former professional women's football player Dani Welniak to close out the first season of the podcast (19:31).
