Guam - In football news Jordaine (Dae-Dae) Felisa Sablan currently plays professional football for the San Diego Surge who is part of the Women's Football Alliance a professional women's football league. She was born on Guam on November 11, 1994 to Anthony Sablan and Sarah Honorario-Sablan. The youngest of five siblings, they were raised in Dededo, and all attended Trinity Christian Scool in Yigo, where her Mom taught 5th grade and Dad was the MS/HS Athletic Director. In her first season Dae-Dae received the "2013 Offensive Player of the Year"; scored 13 career TD's in 2013; 9 career TD's for the 2014 season along with her team making it to this year's title game.

Sablan told KUAM Sports, "So my sister's older friend actually played for the San Diego Surge for 4 years. She gave me a call around November 2012 and I just graduated from high school and I was sure why not. I ended up trying out November 18th of 2012 and we had 3 tryouts from there and then I got an email a couple of weeks later saying that I made the team. I grew up playing volleyball and soccer and football is definitely a different sport and is more technical but it's really fun. Through all of the sprained ankle and bruised muscles and everything it has been really awesome. This game doesn't feel like a loss it makes me more focused I would say and it makes me strive to get better as a football player and also as an athlete to get better. Hopefully this next season we get to go back to the championship again and hopefully get that ring."
