Women are huddling up — and they’re good.

The documentary “Tackle Girls” follows America’s best female football players on Team USA as they tackle their dreams and along the way inspire younger gridiron girls. Receiver Adrienne Smith is part of the gold-medal winning team. She joined us on The Couch to chat about the film and the team’s upcoming trip to The White House.

“Football is something that’s been a passion of mine since I was a little girl,” Smith said. “So the ability to play it now, it’s a dream come true.”

Smith is described as one of the best female wide receivers in the country. She scored the first touchdown in the history of international women’s football.

While she currently has a full-time job as a businesswoman, she wouldn’t rule out the possibility of a women’s football league, similar to the NFL.

“I think anything’s possible, and the model has already been proven by the WNBA. So the chance of having a really full-on professional women’s football league, I would not count that out,” Smith said.
