With his whimsical style and technical impact, Dennis Rodman made NBA history. His daughter Trinity could be doing the same in the soccer world. At only 20 years old, she is already collecting records.
Her father, backed by Kobe Bryant, couldn’t help it: from an early age, Trinity Rodman chose to use her feet rather than her hands to shine on the sports field. This tenacious character is undoubtedly one of the keys to her success.
Record(s) of precociousness
Trinity Rodman has been making tough choices since her college career. So when the season was postponed because of the Covid-19 pandemic, she redoubled her efforts to reach the professional level. A choice that paid off, as at only 18 years old, she became the youngest player drafted in history.
It didn’t take her long to prove herself with the Washington Spirits. In her first game of the season, she scored a goal on her debut in the 60th minute to become the youngest striker in NWSL history.
On her way to the Golden Ball?
She finished the first year with a total of 14 goals, a starting place, and the title of “Rookie of the year,” which led her club to sign a contract extension XXL: 1.1 million dollars until 2024, more than stars like Megan Rapinoe. However, everything leads us to believe this is only the beginning since the rookie signed her first goal with the national team in April and is already on the list of finalists for the prestigious Golden Ball.
