Kathryn Blais Q&A

Who was your childhood idol? Why?
My grandmothers…both of my grandmothers lived alone for many years after my grandfathers passed, and they really showed me what being a strong, independent woman really meant. They showed me what the true meaning of family is, and for that, I am very thankful.
Who is your biggest supporter?
My family…they have always been there for me, no matter what. They have pushed me to make myself better, and they have molded me into the woman I am today.
Who is your female sports idol?
Mia Hamm.
Who is your favorite NFL player? Why?
Rob Gronkowski…every week he gives it his all, and he never gives up. He has a lot of determination, and he puts his heart into every play. He is also a team player and doesn’t care if he is the MVP of every game.
What are your favorite hobbies or special interests?
Playing and watching sports, camping, and traveling.
What is your favorite travel location?
Anywhere tropical or with a lot of history!
What is your favorite food?
Honey-baked ham.
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Energetic, compassionate, competitive.
What are your lifetime aspirations?
I want to be an athletic director at a big high school or even at the college level.
What was the first sport you ever played?
Basketball.
What is your favorite sports memory?
Winning three state championships in high school.
How did you hear about women’s football?
A current player told me I should try out.
Why do you want to play women’s football?
Growing up, I always wanted to play football, but until recently, we didn’t have football where I was from. I have always loved the game and I love to play, so I decided to try out for the team.
What does it mean to you to be a D.C. Diva?
Being a Diva means being a part of a family.
