One of the guys


When I was a player in high school or now as a female coach of a boys team … the greatest compliment I can ever receive is to be considered one of the guys.

Acceptance, really, is all any of us seek as people … and it’s what we can give each other in various forms.

I work hard to be considered part of the team.

Still, it’s more special every time they realize that it’s never our gender that matters.
