Today we resume our coverage of the Chicago Bliss with the start of the series of "Meet the Rookies." Over the next week or so, we will be featuring the newest members of the Bliss, as they prepare for their first season with the two time defending LFL champs.
Our first introductory interview is with Caitlin Jo Burke, also known as CJB. A wide receiver-defensive back, she will wear #17. She talked about her athletic background, her path to the Bliss and more.
CJB studied Journalism/Advertising at Southern Illinois University. She might be gunning for me on both fronts. Is there a CJB's Beat in her future?
I don't know the answer to that question, but I do know there is some hard-hitting 7-on-7 women's football in her future. That future starts on April 11 in Atlanta, when the Bliss face the Atlanta Steam (their 2014 LFL Legends Cup opponent). For more info on that game and the rest of their 2015 schedule, check out LFLUS.com and the Chicago Bliss Facebook page.
We hope you enjoy meeting Caitlin through this intro interview. Look forward to meeting the rest of the Bliss rookies here in the near future.
