Personal Info

Tara's time with the Blaze started during COVID and she was dilligent getting her body ready to play competitive football. She played her first year on the team as a tackle and her season was cut short due to injury. She tried her best to play through it earning the respect and admiration of both players and coaches alike. She came back with a vengeance and became the starting tackle during the championship season. With the retirement of the longtime center, Tara took on the leadership role on the offensive line and made the change to become the teams center. Her tireless efforts on and off the field have impressed the coaching staff and lead the team to trust her as the player in the middle of the line.


  • I watched my boys for so long and saw their growth I admired them
  • At the tryouts it was fun and exciting, all the girls and coaches were amazing. I didn't know I wanted to do it as much as I did that day!
  • I love the challenge in learning as well as the physically being able to play just makes me appreciate the sport more.

In addition to her desire to learn and play the sport that she loves, her passion for her team is something special.

The sisterhood and love you gain for my teammates and coaches is unbelievable. The bond we make together in the thick of the game and practices is unforgettable
