RODNEY LACY NAMED COMMISSIONER FOR WOMEN'S PRO FOOTBALL LEAGUE



Nashville, TN - The National Women's Football Association has announced the appointment of Rodney Lacy as the new NWFA Commissioner.

Lacy who is originally from Downers Grove, IL attended North Park University where he played linebacker receiving male athlete of the year twice and was named all conference linebacker his junior year. After college, he moved on to coach high school football throughout the Chicago and St. Louis areas.

In the spring of 2004 Lacy's love of football took him on an interesting path and he became the defensive coordinator for the St. Louis Slam, professional women's football team. The following year he became the head coach. As the head coach for the St. Louis Slam his team improved each year with the records of 5-3, 7-2, and 8-2. His coaching expertise led the St. Louis Slam to the NWFA playoffs in two of his three years as head coach, both appearances ending in the second round. In 2007 he left the St. Louis Slam to take the head coaching position at T. F.  North High School in Chicago, IL where he is also a high school physical education teacher.

"Rodney did a lot for our team and we'll definitely miss him. He is a very through person and will make a great commissioner for our league", states Slam team owner, Nancy Simonds.

Catherine Masters, President of the NWFA feels that Lacy will be a huge asset to the league. "He's been around the league long enough to understand the issues and will bring a new level of professionalism to this position," she states. Lacy's first order of business will be to develop the 2008 schedule.
