Growing up in Tallahassee, Chelsea Parmer played youth tackle football, one of only two girls in the league. At Leon High, she played varsity flag football and led the Lions to state titles in 2007 and 2008.
Now that she's a senior at Florida State, she gets her gridiron fix by coaching flag football at Leon and playing in an adult flag football league.
"I always loved football," Parmer said. "I just like the fact that flag football is very fast-paced. We haven't even scratched the surface of the athletes who would play if it was a scholarship sport in college."
