Many people may assume that Michael Jackson‘s children will go into the music biz when they grow up but one of them may eventually grow up to be a professional sports athlete. Paris Michael Katherine is a member of her school’s flag football team and, as I understand it, she’s got mad skillz. Click below to see some photos of Paris in action on the football field of glory.
The daughter of the late Michael Jackson was seen showing off her skills on the pitch earlier today playing flag football. Paris, 13, is the only girl on the team and was playing for her team at her Los Angeles private school. While Paris played just as tough as any of the other boys, her brothers Prince and Blanket were on the sidelines cheering on their sister. And it appears that the King of Pop’s daughter’s effort paid off and her team had a convincing win. Paris tweeted: ‘We Won 32-6!!!!!!!! Yeahhh Boiiiiii!!! #Leggo’
Awww … I love this so much. Good for Paris. Just the mere fact that she likes to play football will inspire others not only to want to play themselves but will shed attention on the matter of women in men’s professional sports. This young girl is no different from the countless other young girls who love to play “boys sports”. Maybe Paris can affect real change in sports gender boundaries by just being herself. I LOVE how well she handles the little pip squeak boy in the photo above. Paris Jackson is my hero!
