Our Chicago Bliss coverage continues today with the "Meet the Rookies" series featuring Akilah Anderson. AA is one of the several rookies who has made the roster for the 2015 LFL defending champion Chicago Bliss.
We got our introductory interview with AA prior to a practice and prior to her getting her uniform and number. We have since learned that the wide receiver-defensive back will wear #7 for her rookie season.
AA has a solid athletic background, including many years of track. This should translate well on the field as she runs routes and also as she covers receivers. Speed is always a good thing.
She talked to us about her path to the Bliss, her tryout and much more. As the season progresses, we will be checking back with Akilah often.
Akilah and the other rookies should make some noise this season. Speaking of noise, we hope the fans come out to the home opener on April 25 and make a lot of noise in support of their Chicago Bliss.
