ESPNW’s Awesome Blog Series: Posts Written About Playing Sports By The Women Who Play Them

One fun thing that ESPNW does with their blog is have female athletes who are currently playing post short pieces about their experiences. I absolutely love this series and am thankful that ESPNW chooses to give female athletes space to share their stories directly with ESPNW’s readers.

Here are some examples:

We win because we have fun while doing it by Amber Freeman, a player on Arizona Sun Devil’s softball team

Getting to know my new city, and new team and I’m pumped to be a Chicago Red Star by Erin McLeod, goalkeeper for the National Women’s Soccer League’s Chicago Reds

WNBA draft a dream come true by Kelsey Bone, former center for Texas A&M who was recently drafted by the WNBA’s New York Liberty

Feeling at home on the road by Emily Young, a player on the USC volleyball team

Rehabbing and getting ready for the season by Carli Lloyd, midfielder for National Women’s Soccer League’s Western New York Flash

The posts are just at their blog and they aren’t delineated in any particular way or given a specific hashtag. They are just included as part of the regular offerings at ESPNW.
