Women’s tackle football national team features Albany kicker

Albany’s Alaina Lange will fight for a gold medal as kicker/punter for the U.S. Women’s Tackle Football National Team in Finland on Sunday.

The gold would be the fourth straight for the U.S., which plays Great Britain at 12:10 p.m. in the International Federation of American Football World Championship.

Lange, who coaches soccer and teaches eighth grade at Lansingburgh High School, is in her fifth year playing tackle football, but this is her first experience with the national team.

Support from her students and friends back home is helping to keep her motivated.

“It helps to just kind of just keep us pushing forward and keep that gold medal goal in mind knowing that it’s not just for ourselves, but it’s for everybody back home who’s rooting for us and all of the United States,” Lange said.
