On a regular day at her high school, Queen Creek High, Longo happened to glance out of a window and see a group of freshman boys playing football. She decided she was going to join in, no matter what. So she strode confidently out to the field and one of the boys challenged her to kick the ball. Perhaps they doubted her abilities. Becca, however, kicked the ball straight up into the sky.
The boys may not have expected Becca to kick the ball that well, and even she herself was a little surprised by it. She decided there and then that this was something she wanted to pursue. Subsequently, just a week later her father – her biggest supporter – drove her to a kicking camp hosted by the Arizona Cardinals. And such was Becca’s talent, she caught the interest of many people there, including coach Alex Zendejas.
