Lady Salamander National, Jessica Watson-Crosby, New York, NY (Defender)

Lady Salamanders Celebrate with Founding Sponsor Sheila Johnson
Jessica Watson-Crosby, New York, NY (Defender)

At 62 years old, Jessica is not one who thought learning new tricks was possible. “The experience of playing soccer and being around such a group of positive people, taught me that actually, I was oppressed. A prisoner in my own mind. I thought Street Soccer was some kind of joke, but even before I got to play on this national team, I can honestly say that it changed my life.” Jessica is a resident in the in the Brownsville women’s shelter Brooklyn run by HELP USA. She joined the first ever women’s team catalyzed by the launch of the Lady Salamander Program in 2010.
