    Katie Klatt - USA Freedom

    On Outside 50's Ep30 we talked with Katie Klatt a Sacramento Sun, San Francisco Iron Maiden, Vice Captain of the USA Freedom, a Melbourne Uni Mugar and now a potential Boston Lady Demon.
    Katie was one of the first U.S. women to travel to Australia to try and make it in the AFLW. Since then, she’s back in the States obtaining her Master’s Degree at Harvard while looking to take a more relaxed approach to the game.
    The women’s game has grown so much over the years, and Katie loves seeing the continual improvement of competition. Katie recommends women players to take the game seriously if they want to compete in Australia and also to fine tune and really work on basic skills.
    While in Boston, Katie is likely to connect with the Boston Demons to train which will be her third USAFL club, but overall is just looking forward to being back on the field like the rest of us during these COVID times.

    Colin Smith - Boston Demons

    Colin Smith - Boston Demons

    Ep29 of Outside 50 we sat down with Colin Smith, President of the Boston Demons. The theme of the episode kept revolving around camaraderie and how much of a close-knit group the Demons truly are, especially being one of the oldest clubs in the USAFL.
    Over the years, the club has managed to be successful because of the bond shared by its players. As President, Colin really explains how he really wants to push for more recruitment in the coming seasons, and to continue to develop local areas to play metro games as well as continuing to strengthen the women’s team and women's involvement in the club.
    The Boston Demons club in regular years usually look forward to playing teams like Montreal and Portland, however, with the uncertainty of this season the Demons are trying to get some training going while just keeping their always cohesive culture game strong.
    You can find the Boston Demons active on all social media platforms and visit their website at https://www.boston-demons.com

    Simon Ansell - LA Dragons FC

    On this Episode 28 of the Outside 50 podcast, we have a chat with Simon Ansell from the LA Dragons Football Club. Simon arrived in Los Angeles from Sydney a few years back and got involved with the Dragons pretty soon thereafter.
    Simmo talks candidly with us about the positive welcome that he's received so far, the growth of the game in the States, and his own unique perspective growing up in the rugby league-dominant Sydney suburbs.
    Simmo also relates how the LA is probably the best place in the USA to play footy with weather that suits all year round play and those social activities that we all know coincide well with footy clubs.
    You can find the LA Dragons on all Social Media apps of course and visit their website at www.ladragons.com

    Donnie Hess - Des Moines Roosters

    Donnie Hess - Des Moines Roosters

    Ep27 of Outside 50 changes gears a little as we chat about the coaching side of footy with Des Moines Rooster, Donnie Hess.
    Being in “America’s Heartland,” there are a different breed of players who are predominately American and have a love for the physical side of the sport.
    Donnie recently transitioned over into the head coach for the Roosters, but has a strong background in coaching his local youth basketball team. Donnie also discusses the fate of the 80/35 tournament that the club hosts yearly and how he hopes the women’s side can grow from the tournament as well.
    Donnie attributes the success and strength of the Roosters to having such a great group of men and women who have developed strong bonds and friendships over the years. If you need anything, the Roosters are always there for their teammates.
    For more information on the Des Moines Roosters please check out their Facebook and Instagram pages @DesMoinesRoosters and their website www.desmoinesroosters.com.

    Drea Casillas - New York Magpies

    Drea Casillas - New York Magpies

    Ep25 of Outside 50 has one of the most involved footy players in the United States, NY Magpie's Drea Casillas. Some might even call her Wonder Woman, Drea talks all things women’s footy from her many roles with starting the NY Lady Magpies to playing on the US Freedom team to being a founder of the Women’s Association and a former board member of the league and now President of the NY Magpies club itself. Wow.
    Drea's impressive athletic background also lends her to be a role model and leader on the off the field for women’s footy. She’s one of the strongest and most determined players in US footy today. Drea in 2019 played at her 14th USA Nationals after recently giving birth to her son last year.
    Committed to continually growing the game of footy across the US and especially for her home team in New York, Drea's leadership of the women NY Magpies inspires an entire club, driven for success on the field, but also having a sense of community and involvement for all men and women, to be able to feel welcomed into an Aussie Rules Football family.
