Snellville Woman on Roster for Atlanta Steam, Women's Football League

The women's league formerly known as the Lingerie Football League plans to debut in Gwinnett in April.

The Legends Football League, which until recently was known as the Lingerie Football League, has announced the roster for the Atlanta Steam on its website. The women's football league plans to open play in April 2013 in Gwinnett. 

Former Arena Football League player Ray Norell is the head coach.

Snellville's Alexandria Stone, 24, is among the 20 women on the team. She is described as tall, versatile, strong and that she plays angry. Her Facebook fan page says that she is looking to local small businesses for support, so if you want Stone to "promote your clothing line, marketing or suggest your business," contact her at StoneLFL34@gmail.com.

Stone, a South Gwinnett graduate, was one of hundreds of women to vie for a spot on the team. 

In the LFL, football is seven on seven, with no kickoffs, punts or field goals.
