Did you know she was once one of Blount County’s best young running backs?

Trying her hand at several sports as a kid, Lindsey Roddy first spent a season as a Fairview Raiders cheerleader, the next as a home run threat for the Parks & Rec youth football team out of the backfield.

On the basketball court, Roddy became the eighth inductee in the program's 1,000-point club while earning district player of the year honors.
