Trinity Rodman (DR) / Full Sent Podcast (DR)
Icon of the NBA floors, Dennis Rodman sees his daughter Trinity take a slightly different path from his. She is also a high-level athlete, the young woman is a hit in her field, and has even just received immense recognition!
Regrettably enough, he is sometimes depicted only as a fanatic who cared as much about his nightlife as his performance on the NBA floors. However, Dennis Rodman remains widely considered a league legend, as the centerpiece of the Bulls’ 2nd three-peat. From the top of his double meter 01, he also appears as one of the best rebounders in history!
A fierce competitor, The Worm passed this gene on to his daughter, Trinity. At only 19 years old, the latter presents herself as the biggest rising star in American soccer. Drafted by the Washington Spirit just a year ago, the young striker signed an impressive first season in one of the most competitive leagues on the planet, with 7 goals and 7 assists compiled in 25 games. Enough to get great rewards.
Dennis Rodman’s daughter is doing something unheard of for him
Elected best hope of the US championship and the country, Trinity Rodman will now be able to taste the international level with Team USA, as reported by Cydney Henderson of USA Today !
Washington Spirit forward Rodman is one of 25 players selected by USWNT coach Vlatko Andonovski for the first training camp of the year in Austin, Texas, which will take place from January 19-28.
After a first high-flying exercise in the American elite, the promising scorer therefore does better than her famous father, who was never selected to represent the United States on the court. The coach of the national team, Vlatko Andonovski, is full of praise for the newcomer!
She was one of the best players in the league last season, and she proved she could make an impact in the pros and in the NWSL. She therefore deserved a selection in the national team.
Despite this summons, Trinity Rodman will not be able to play his first minutes in the jersey of his selection. However, she will have the opportunity to impress the American staff, and thus hope to join the group for the SheBelieves Cup, which will be held next month. His many and immense qualities could allow him to achieve this feat, a hypothesis that Andonovski does not rule out!
We don’t want to rush things. We have to be patient. She’s still a young player, but we want to expose her to an environment where she can get a little taste of the big time. (…) Hoping that she can continue to progress, and show that she can achieve at international level what she was able to do in the championship.
Trinity Rodman continues her merry way on the American soccer fields, and has just received her first call-up for Team USA. An accomplishment that should certainly make his father Dennis proud!
