It’s San Antonio Football with female flair; a new professional team is starting from the ground up: Texas Legacy.

The women are ready to break the barrier while helping the community.

A group of women, each with a different background, come together for the love of the game, - football.

But these plays are not for fun.

They're practicing to become the next best team under the 'Texas Ladies Football League'
Amanda Lozano spearheaded the 'Texas legacy' team.

They're starting from zero! The uniforms have yet to come.

Amanda Lozano says, “I've always loved it and wanted to do it I never had the opportunity to actually be on a team because I’m a female.”

Lozano’s vision: to break a barrier in women's football by giving them a chance to showcase their skills on the field.

Tryouts began this month...and already they’re proving they have what it takes.
Quarterback; - 20 year old Megan Martinez is pouring her heart into the sport.

Martinez says the team is like a family.

And they hope to show San Antonio how much heart they have outside the game, by helping charities raise money and donating their time for good causes.

The team's coach and training staff don’t go easy on them, because it’s a full-on contact practice.
