WOMEN'S FOOTBALL 2010: TIGER CAT TRIO EARNS ALL-STAR STATUS (2010-06-12)
Heather Peck Brittanny Dunbar Stacey Hardnett
Valley Sports Report
BINGHAMTON — A trio of Binghamton Tiger Cats have been named alternates on the 2010
Independent Women's Football League Eastern Conference All-Star team. Brittanny Dunbar and
Heather Peck were both selected as linebackers while Stacey Hardnett was chosen as a wide receiver
even though she played quarterback and running back. Dunbar, who led the Cats in tackles this season,
attended Tioga Central and Athens schools. Peck teaches at Tioga and is the varsity field hockey and
bowling coach there. Hardnett graduated from Syracuse Nottingham. Peck also played running back
and Dunbar was a tight end. Hardnett split time between the quarterback and running back positions.
All three players served on Binghamton’s special teams. The Tiger Cats were 0-8 this season, beset by
player shortages, injuries and inexperience, but made continuous progress throughout the season.
The all-star game will be held during the IWFL Championship Weekend, on July 25 at 10 a.m.
in Round Rock, Texas.
Women's pro football team wraps up first season
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- It's the reaction that team members of the Binghamton Tiger Cats have come to expect.
"My first thought was, 'Women play football?'" said John Evans, the Tiger Cat's head coach.
had his own stint in the NFL and coaches full time for a college men's
team. At first, he found the idea of teaching women to play football to
"I kinda came over thinking it was a joke. And when I got over, it was like they were great athletes, they were eager to learn."
Tiger Cats is one of the newest sign-ons to join the Women's Football
Alliance, a competitive national league of professional women football
players. The team is made
up of women ranging in age from 17 all the way
up to their oldest member, Carol Czimback. "I'm 48," said Czimback.
The defensive linesman says
playing helps her cope with her degenerative disc disease and the
opportunity to suit up has been a long time coming.
"Title nine didn't come in until I was in junior high so I never got a chance to play sports."
coaches say age really hasn't been a factor with the team because they
all have such a strong work ethic. Though they have yet to win any
games, their biggest challenge, they say, has been
roster. Right now, 42 women play for the Tiger Cats. They hope to get
that number to 65 next year.
"It's been very challenging, I have
to say, but it's a great tight knit group of girls here, so I'm having
so much fun," said wide receiver, Kelly Burnham.
The Tiger Cats
play their final home game at the Greater Binghamton Sports Complex
against Baltimore next week, and then they're on the road for their
final game in Philadelphia.
In August, they'll back on the turf training
for the 2010 season.

Tiger Cats' Burnham makes stellar first impression
Female football squad to play first home game Saturday
By Michael Sharp • firstname.lastname@example.org • Staff Writer • April 24, 2009
Ignore for a moment the fact that Kelly Burnham was a standout soccer player at Union-Endicott. Forget briefly that she earned a scholarship to Binghamton University, where she patrolled the midfield for four years.
This story begins earlier than that. It begins in the stands at
Maine-Endwell, and at so many other local high school football fields,
where Burnham - then just 12 and 13 - would show up weekend after
weekend to watch her older brother Ryan Carney play quarterback and
safety for the Spartans.
"I went to every single game," she remembered this week. "And every time I watched him, I just wished that I could play."
Well, it's been 10 years or so since those days of cheering on her
brother. Burnham graduated from U-E in 2003 and from Binghamton
University in 2007, and she's now pursuing a master's degree in
Inclusive Childhood Education at BU.
But Saturday night, on
the campus of Passaic County Tech in northern New Jersey, that old
childhood wish finally came true as she lined up at tailback and safety
for the new Binghamton Tiger Cats women's football team.
The Tiger Cats dropped that opening game 21-0 to the New Jersey Titans,
but they return to action at 7 p.m. this Saturday at the Greater
Binghamton Sports Complex, where they will host the Harrisburg-based
Keystone Assault in their first home game of this inaugural season.
"I always wished that they had football for girls," Burnham, 23,
said. "I'm competitive, and watching the game of football, you can see
how competitive of a sport that it is.
"And I've played
sports my whole entire life, but this sport is different than any other
sport that I've ever played. I get an adrenaline rush every practice and
every game. And I love learning about the game each and every day. It's
definitely different ... and I love the challenge."
She also seems ready for that challenge.
Burnham led all Tiger Cats rushers with 83 yards on nine carries
last Saturday night, and she impressed from her spot at free safety as
"She was the talk of the Jersey coaches after the
game, because she comes out of no where, she's so fast," Tiger Cats
coach John Evans said. "She made three tackles in a row on this little
running back that Jersey had. She just came out of nowhere, flying, nice
angle of pursuit. And ran the alley, and just drove her to the ground.
So she's a stud out there at safety also."
Burnham approached him early on, telling him she enjoyed running down
opponents on the soccer field and that it was a skill she felt she could
apply to football. He labeled her athletic, a leader, unafraid of
contact. And he said her Division I background has been evident early
Kelly gets 'em going in practice," he said. "She's
always got her head up, always encouraging people. She's very coachable.
You can just tell she plays the game with a passion."
Or perhaps put another way: She plays the game like this is something she's been waiting a decade to do.
"I just had a mix of nerves and excitement, and walking onto the
field for the first time was amazing," Burnham said, looking back on
last weekend. "It was a feeling I've never felt before, and I just felt
like my lifelong dream of playing football had finally come true. And
even though we did lose the game, I felt like we won. With each quarter,
we got better and better, and we came together as a team."
As for how the new tailback felt the following morning?
"The next day I woke up, and I was extremely sore," she said. "I
had bruises all over my body. But when I walked off that field, after we
played our first game, I just wanted to go right back out there and
