2015 Bio:

Linebacker Schecter is one of British women’s football’s most iconic characters and was again instrumental in much of the Lions’ success this season. A super athlete Schecter is very tough, very talented and very consistent and equally adept at Corner as well as Running Back. A fearsome enforcer Schecter’s star continues to rise: she was Great Britain’s team captain at the recent European Championships as well as an MVP, a selected all-star and the tournaments #1 ranked tackler.

2014 Bio:

The Lions’ most influential defensive player by far this season, Phoebe is an opposition running back’s worst nightmare. Quick and alert, explosive and physical, this New Yorker is the real deal: technically outstanding, a first class enforcer, a total team player and the ultimate enthusiast – will without question be vying for GB honours again this summer.
