Heather Furr was a star player for the Chicago Bliss of the Legends Football League. "Rockstar" was a two-time MVP and a two-time LFL champ.
In one of the many great mysteries of the LFL, Heather never got the real respect she deserved from the league. She was the face of the Bliss and possibly even the league, yet the powers that be in the LFL seemed to want to keep her down.
Heather was as tough as could be. While she lacked arm strength and pure QB ability, she was smart, gritty and competitive beyond. She was a winner and I would go into battle with Heather any day. Her appearance on Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge was as impressive as anything I have seen in sports and she didn't even win. From her confidence to her strategy to her determination, Heather more than proved how tough she is.
It's hard to believe it has been several years since Heather played for the Bliss. Heather is still active in the Chicago area, but in a new field. She is a realtor at Keller Williams Premiere Properties in Glen Ellyn. Heather is doing great and is also planning for her wedding later this year.
