Kate Starbird, football player

Basketball is not Kate's only sport. She has been playing Gaelic football since she was in school. "My sister was dating an Irish bartender for a while, and she got involved with some of his friends in Gaelic," Starbird explains, "and she told me it was a lot of fun and that I should come watch them play. I went to a tournament and watched a match, and told a basketball friend who was with me, 'Wait! We need to be out there! I could do this game.'" Kate has been a dominant force for the Seattle Gaels women's gaelic football team the last several years, and is managing the team this year. Here's more about Kate and football.
