Ever since she was a toddler, Adrienne Smith loved the game of football. She never considered it a career choice until she heard about the little-known world of women's tackle football in 2005. That's right. Tackle! This is not the Lingerie League or Powderpuff (no shade) but full-on, knock you on your butt, shoulder pads and broken bones football. For the last decade, she has dominated the sport and represented the U.S. in international tackle football championships around the world. 

Adrienne joins us on the show to talk about breaking barriers in the sport, why she PAYS to play and how she met President and First Lady Obama.
