When many people think of football, guys in helmets and bulky gear is usually the first thing that comes to their minds.
On October 14th, I went to my little cousin’s football game and although the sport is interesting to me as it is, I was more intrigued when I found out the opposing team had a girl player. I knew that at the end of the game I had to meet her and hear her story!
This fierce and inspiring girl is Aubrey Skye Calo. She is only eight years old and the only girl of triplets. She is super excited as this is her first year playing football for the Toms River Indians with her triplet brothers. Aubrey told me, “in the beginning the boys on my team would give me a hard time because I was the only girl, but I made sure to put them in their place.”
Aubrey is incredible at football and will definitely be able to go far with it.
This young lady is already a role model to other girls! She is showing girls that they should play whatever sport their hearts are in regardless of society’s standards. Aubrey is definitely a girl with beauty and brains.
