Maddy Baxter will be entering seventh grade this fall and wants to continue playing football on the boys football team in Middle School. Yes, continue because she has played on the team when attending elementary school. 

The school says no! No girls allowed!

What do you think of that? Check out the Facebook page, Let Her Play, to follow Maddy.

This reminds me of Angela Ruggiero. She played hockey on a boys team and they finally told her she was not allowed to play anymore. She didn't join the team again, but certainly honed her skills and played smart to make her a celebrity in women's ice hockey. 


  1. What an outrage. I've liked her page and shared this post.

  2. Tara, thanks for helping to spread the word!
