On the Beat with Heather Furr of the Chicago Bliss at the 2015 Tryouts

When you start talking about the Chicago Bliss, you have to start with two-way star Heather Furr.  At the Chicago Bliss tryouts for the 2015 roster, after congratulating her on the back-to-back Legends Football League championships, we talked to Furr.
Furr discussed winning the title again, going for the threepeat, the new home for the Bliss and her appearance on Stone Cold's Broken Skull Challenge.  As usual, Furr was open and honest.
The Rockstar is one of the league's best at both safety and quarterback.  She is a natural leader and will someday make a great coach if she pursues that.  "Rockstar" is not just a random nickname.  She has the "it" factor.  Don't get mislead though, despite being a star, she is a grinder, too.  She is one of the toughest athletes I have ever seen.
Her toughness was tested on the Broken Skull Challenge.  A few of my doubting friends watched the show, saw her effort and immediately jumped on the Furr bandwagon.  I don't want to give away the ending of that episode, but I will say that she erased any doubt about her toughness.  I never doubted her, but even I gained a whole new level of respect.
It has been a pleasure to watch Furr.  I am looking forward to even more fun this season.  After you watch the interview, head over to for more info and more updates.  Also, stay tuned here as we cover the Bliss all the way to the threepeat!
