Competing in girls' golf for four years at Burroughs High, Emily Tubert was an important part on every Indian team in which she played.
Although she did participate on teams, the individualistic aspect of the sport didn't hold the same camaraderie as other sports she had played as a youth.
"I did play water polo my freshman year," Tubert said. "But the last few years playing golf was kind of lonely."
So, when Tubert had a chance to compete in another team endeavor, she jumped at the chance.
Despite having already committed to the University of Arkansas, Tubert was willing to risk injury to take part in the annual Burbank-Burroughs Power Puff Football Game.
"I called my coach at Arkansas right before I played the game to see if it was OK to play," said Tubert, who graduated in May. "She said it was OK and that I could go ahead and do it."
