My name is Jane Panesse. After my father died in a car accident when I was sixteen, I decided to pursue football as a tribute to him. I struggled my way through college coaching for experience, always trying to prove I belonged to the field. And now I’m excited to finally jump into the big leagues as a strength and conditioning assistant coach of the North Carolina Knights.
I’ve always been a stubborn, short-tempered, swearing-like-a-sailor tomboy. But it’s a different ballgame with the football players.
They can be crass, rude, misogynistic.
One in particular, the arrogant and egotistical star quaterback, John Scepter.
He thinks there’s no place for women in professional football and is not subtly trying to force me out.
I hate him.
Yet, no one makes my heart race like he does…
And that makes me hate him even more.
