LIKE MOST WISCONSINITES – SAVANNAH CURTIS HAS GOT A LOT OF LOVE FOR A CERTAIN FORMER QUARTERBACK. “I got this second grade? Gosh, his last season with the Packers.” SO MUCH LOVE – THAT SHE WAS INSPIRED TO GET OUT ON THE FIELD HERSELF, DESPITE SOME HESITATION FROM MOM. “well at first i was a little apprehensive about it because I didn’t want her to get hurt but she was so interested in football that we were just like.. go for it. There was no stopping Savannah.” THAT WAS IN FOURTH GRADE – NOW ALMOST TEN YEARS LATER, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS ARE THE NORM. “it’s just the football team and Sav now, so” BUT DON’T UNDERESTIMATE HER BECAUSE SHE WEARS MASCARA AND A LONG BRAID.. JUST ASK HER DAD. “it was the last play of the game if i recall correctly and she threw a heck of a block on a boy that wasn’t expecting it that was going for the wide receiver and kind of laid him out and paved the way for the wide reciver to make it into the endzone.” NO DOUBT THAT SAVANNAH IS TOUGH. BUT SHE GIVES CREDIT TO THE WOMEN WHO HAVE PAVED THE WAY. “it’s cool to see that there are female coaches now in the nfl and girls are really starting to get involved with like guys sports.” LITTLE DOES SHE KNOW, SHE’S DOING EXACTLY THAT FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS TO COME. “Don’t like let people tell you – oh that’s a guys’ sport, like you shouldn’t be playing. because you can, girls can do it too, you know.” AND THIS SMALL, TIGHTLY KNIT COMMUNITY – COULDN’T BE MORE PROUD. “she’s probably very intimidating because she’s very confident – like i said, she’s not gonna back down from anybody.” “to be honest with you, words can’t describe it. i always say thanks for making me so proud. if i could’ve made my parents half as proud, i’d feel great.” IN LODI, MELISSA KIM, NEWS 3 SPORTS.
