Lois McNeil Q&A

Who was your childhood idol? Why?
My grandfather…he knows everything and has all the answers, and I’ve always wanted to be just like him. Still do.
Who is your biggest supporter?
Applications are now being accepted. Apply at the next game, bring your outside voice, and wear #18 on your chest!
What is your favorite TV show?
What is your favorite quote?
“Get in where you fit in.”
How would you describe yourself in three words?
No sense whatsoever!
What are your lifetime aspirations?
Growing up, it was always to be the first woman in the NFL! Now, I’d like to perfect my talents, to be an inspiration to others, and to get my oil changed regularly.
How did you get into women’s football?
I always carry a football around everywhere I go but one day, during college, I was throwing the ball around campus when I was stopped by a security guard…it turned out that he was the head coach of the local team. I was recruited.
What is your most memorable Divas moment?
June 13, 2009…my ankle, tibia, and fibula were all broken. It was the first time I ever had to limit myself. I had to overcome my impatience while accepting and understanding the severity of my injury. I had to renew my strength both physically and mentally while life as I knew it was put on hold.
What does it mean to you to be a Diva?
Being a Diva is being in a whole new world. There is no hate or drama, and everyone is here for each other. There is so much support and love. It’s a true meaning of family…full of pride, dedication, courage, passion, and hard work. No matter how strong you are, you only have the strength of your weakest teammate, and no matter how weak you are, you are as strong as your strongest teammate. There is no “I” in Diva. It was just a typo.
