In a report by the Associated press, via ESPN.com, Lauren Silberman is set to try out during the regional combine, as a kicker, at the New York Jets’ training facility this weekend.
If she does compete at the regional combine, she will be the first female to ever participate at such an event in the NFL.
Per the same report, Silberman hopes to help find a way to promote more female involvement in the NFL. She also adds that she is wanting to use this opportunity as a learning experience.
Although Silberman has never kicked an actual football in an organized game, she is a soccer player hoping to receive an invite to an NFL training camp.
At 28 years old, she is attempting to accomplish quite an amazing feat and I must admit that I am 110% in her corner.
Best of luck to you Lauren from all of us here at BoltBlitz.com.
Thanks a lot for reading.
