And it is important to know everything about her because she has been able to respond to the opportunities she has been given, becoming one of the most important references not only in the NWSL and the USWNT but in women's soccer worldwide. 

Who is Trinity Rodman?

Rodman is an American soccer player who currently plays as a striker for the Washington Spirit of the National Women's Soccer League of the United States and who, little by little, has been achieving accomplishments that have made the whole world look at her. 

For example, she is the youngest player to be selected in an NWSL draft, and yesterday she became the fourth teenager to be called up and lined up in the USWNT, after Lindsey Horan, Mallory Pugh, and Tierna Davidson.

She also had a dream 2021 with her team, the Washington Spirit, for which the forward was chosen to receive the Young Female Player of the Year trophy awarded by U.S. Soccer.

Where and when was Trinity Rodman born?

The striker was born in Newport Beach, California, United States on May 20, 2002, so she is about to turn 20 years old and her life has always been related to the sport. 

This is because her father is Dennis Rodman, who became a world basketball legend after playing side by side with Michael Jordan in Phil Jackson's Chicago Bulls.

However, the player confesses that she has had a complicated relationship with her father since he has not always been by her side and even months or even years can go by without both of them interacting. 

But despite this chiaroscuro in her life, the player does not live her life through her father's name because she has forged her own name in the world of sports. 

Trinity Rodman's career, an example of dedication and excellence

Rodman started in soccer with the SoCal Blues at the age of ten and won four national championships in the Elite Clubs National League and her team maintained a five-year undefeated streak.

He later committed to play college soccer for UCLA Bruins before changing his mind and deciding to follow in his older brother's footsteps at the Washington State Cougars.

But unfortunately for the player, she did not play a single game in college, as her freshman season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However this did not discourage her and she decided to turn pro before playing a game in college, and her efforts were rewarded when in 2021, she was selected by Washington Spirit in the second round of the NWSL draft,78.

In this way, she became the youngest player to be selected in a draft of this league, and her achievements did not stop there since on April 10, 2021, she made her professional debut scoring a goal against North Carolina Courage in the NWSL Challenge Cup 2021, after 5 minutes of entering as a substitute.
