NEJC Faces: Madison Rosas, SM North freshman quarterback


“I’m 14. About four or five years ago, I started tossing the ball around with my dad. And he just put me in football from there. I’ve been playing on teams for about three and a half years. I knew I was all in [to play at the high school level] because I like the contact and it’s just a really good sport.

“The boys on the team seem like they’re pretty good with having a girl quarterback. The first time I showed up they had some pretty weird faces. But, other than that, I think they’re okay with me being here.

“We had our first game. We scored 16 and they scored 48. But every practice we’re going to get better. The biggest thing is that we never gave up.”
