It’s 9:30 a.m. Saturday morning, and Brianna Rae Ogden is lacing up her cleats. Brianna is preparing for her routine Saturday football practice with the San Antonio Texas Legacy, a Semi-Pro Tackle Football Team “representing San Antonio with elite female football athletes.”
Brianna and her team recently fought their way to an undefeated season of 10-0. As starting receiver, Briana not only helped her team to their championship win, but she contributed to a 100-point game, which made Texas Legacy the first semi-pro ladies team in history to score 100 points in a single game.
Off the field, you can catch Brianna in Poteet, Texas, where she was born and raised with her parents and two older brothers. Brianna is now 21 years old and a full-time Palo Alto College student pursuing a degree in Speech Pathology. Brianna wants to “help kids, even adults, that have communication disorders and work in a school or maybe a hospital.” However, Brianna’s “dream job” is to be “a professional backup dancer for Beyonce.”
“I’ve always played sports throughout my life, so I wanted to do something more challenging. I was somewhat familiar with the game because I was a cheerleader for four years but never knew much about the technical terms,” said Brianna about getting involved with Texas Legacy Football.
In her free time, Brianna likes to workout, go out with friends, dance and sleep.
