Inspired by her achievements, the Phoenix Mercury will host Basha High School football kicker Becca Longo and her family at practice with the team on Friday, May 12. She will also be an honorary guest at the Fry’s Food Stores Home Opener on Sunday, May 14.
Longo made history when she accepted an athletic scholarship to Adams State University to play football and women’s basketball. She is the first female to receive a football scholarship to a NCAA school at the Division II level or higher.
The Phoenix Mercury invited Longo via a video message from Mercury Center, Brittney Griner.
