Nikki Johnson from Flag to Tackle

24 May

We first met Nikki Johnson for the first time at the 2008 Women’s Football Camp & Conference held in Las Vegas, NV.  Nikki was still in High School, speaking on behalf of girl’s flag football in the high schools to get as a sanctioned sport.  She was one of 10 young girls chosen to help promote Flag Football for the NFL.

This is what many of us have been promoting.  If you want to have good quality athletes, they need to have a place to start learning and playing the game of football at an earlier age level.
