The American Womens Football League (NWSL) is a remarkable player richer. 18-year-old Trinity Rodman got a contract with Washington Spirit.
Rodman is now best known as the daughter of former NBA basketball player Dennis Rodman, but the American youth international wants to change that.
“ I have my fathers genes. Im grateful for that, because he was insanely athletic. But I dont want to be the daughter of forever, thats why Im so glad I can now walk my own path,” says Trinity Rodman.
Unlike her father, Rodman is an attacker. Shes fast and purposeful. At the youth championship for North America, Central America and the Caribbean, she excelled last year with eight goals and six assist.
Playing with Jordan and having an affair with Madonna
Rodman senior was a successful and rebellious basketball player in the 1990s. He became champion of the NBA five times. He won his last three titles as a defensive pillar of the mighty Chicago Bulls with Michael Jordan.
Besides basketball, Rodman also gained fame for his always brightly colored head of hair, dress up as a woman, various arrests, affair with Madonna and marriage to Playboy model Carmen Electra.
