Emily Lou is the latest star to take a shot at the NFL.
Lou, a rising star in the NFL Draft, is set to make her pro debut with the Cleveland Browns on Saturday against the Oakland Raiders.
In a preview of her game against the Raiders, Lou told USA Today Sports that she wants to give the fans a great game.
“I want to make them feel like I’m ready to play,” Lou said.
“I want them to know that I’m going to be ready.
I’m not scared to play and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
In a video that was released Friday, Lou talked about her motivation for making the NFL and the opportunity that she had.
“I just want to give everybody a great experience,” she said.
Lou’s journey to the NFL began when she was a child and she played in high school and college.
She was a three-year starter for the University of Alabama, playing in 12 games and earning All-America honors.
In the 2015 season, Lou was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year.
Lou also played in the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine where she impressed scouts with her athleticism, strength and tackling ability.
She had three tackles for loss in 14 career games, including two sacks and two forced fumbles.
Lou said that her biggest motivation for playing in the league was her parents.
“The main reason I wanted to play was my mom,” Lou told the Associated Press.
“We had a great childhood, so my parents, they always had me playing and I just love playing football.”
Lou, who is from Orlando, Florida, was born in 1996.
She grew up in the Orlando area and attended Florida State University.
She went to college at Miami University, where she played football.
Lou has also been a member of the University’s football team for the past four seasons.
She is one of the few players to make a team of her own.
She is a four-year contributor to the team.
Lou was selected in the third round (No. 98 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft.
