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.
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.
