The Whistle put together an amazing inside look at Devon Wills, the MLL’s first and only female lacrosse player.

As rosters were announced last week, a moment many men and women were waiting for was to see if Devon Wills’ name would show up anywhere on the New York Lizards’ website.

It did.

Devon was named as a goalie for the practice squad, officially making her the first female to ever sign to a MLL roster.

Although she is a woman playing in a men’s league, it is no publicity stunt. It appears the Lizards believe in Devon for all the right reasons and as do I. Watch the video to see what I mean…

She is a champion and student of the game, gender does not define toughness or the ability to lead a team and keep the ball out of the net.

If your going to put your name on something, you do it as hard and as best as you can. – Greg Gurenlian

As in the wise words from The Beast, Devon said what she was going to do and she did it. I wish Devon and the Lizards the best of luck in the 2014 season.
