When I first met Chantell Taylor at a Chicago Bliss practice, I thought she was in excellent shape and she certainly was attractive. No offense, but she did not strike me as someone who could do real damage on defense. I was wrong.
Chantell is a beast on defense. She is one of the best defensive players in the Legends Football League. She has a rare and deadly combination of speed, strength and football smarts. I have seen her drive quarterbacks, running backs, receivers and linemen crazy, sometimes on one play. She also can drive teammates crazy in practice. She has passion for the game and is determined to win on every down.
By now the world is learning about Chantell and the rest of the Bliss on Pretty. Strong., their tv show on the Oxygen Network. If you haven't watched it yet, make sure you do. The Bliss deserve the attention.
My only problem with Chantell is that sometimes early on, I had trouble recognizing her. I blame it on her ever-changing hair styles. Once she was on the field, I knew exactly who she was though. Other LFL teams know who she is, too, and that isn't good news for them
