Flag Football

  • 2024  –  Brazil

My name is Ashlea Klam. I am 19 years old and a freshman athlete at Keiser University and on the Women’s Flag Football U.S. National Team. Ever since I was a toddler, sports have always been a huge part of my life. I have competed competitively in flag football, basketball, volleyball, softball and track & field over the years. I started playing flag when I was 7 years old. Flag football was my love from the beginning and is now the sport that I am fortunate enough to get to play in college on a scholarship. My nickname on the field is “Hollywood” because I was a child actor when I was younger. I played for my youth club travel team, Texas Fury from 2018-2023. In 2022, I was named Co-Captain of the 17u U.S. National team where we were crowned the Jr. International Bowl Champions. This past year, I was the youngest member of the Women’s U.S. National Team, where we won the IFAF America’s Continental Cup in July 2023. It was an amazing honor to play and represent my country at that level. I am currently the youngest member serving on the USA Football Board of Directors. I am so excited and honored to have this amazing opportunity to travel to Brazil as a Sports Envoy for the United States to share my love for flag football to the world.
