Social Media Bio:
This dope AF player came sauntering onto the women’s pro club scene for the 1st time this year! She’s a homegrown New Englander, hailing out of CT. She started her career with Northeastern Valkyries in 2012 and hasn’t left Boston since, spending 1 club season with Vice and 3 club seasons with Siege before joining Brute this year. You read that right, she is about to go to her very first club nationals with Brute Squad, yet she’s already been interviewed by ESPN this season for her breakout performances in some of our biggest games. CanCan can be seen streaking deep with 2 long arms outstretched reaching for a deep disc that might not have even left the throwers hands yet. She’s not a jesus fanatic, she is just simply foreshadowing the inevitable sky that is about to take place. She’s open even if she’s covered #suckitari, and if you’re an o-line handler, you best summon your ancestors for protection because if she’s guarding you then there’s a 70% chance she’s shutting you down 100% of the time.
