Carly Austin #11

Member At-Large, Center Half Back

Carly is one of the most-talented center halfbacks in the nation. Although a Colorado native, she first learned about footy while living in Sacramento, California. Her experience in various sports such as soccer, volleyball, track, basketball and crew give her the hand up when reading the field, ensuring quick decision making and communicating to teammates. Her long booming kick is one to be envied. Carly is a founding member and current member at large.

Toria Baker #18

Ruck

Toria is a tall, all-around athlete. She began playing footy in 2019 and immediately took to the game like a natural. Her height and athletic background give her the advantage when contesting center bounces, boundary throw-ins and ball-ups in the ruck position. She is extremely coachable, eager, and an excellent addition to the Tigers. Toria will be one of many to help bring this team to the next level.

Sara Burns #8

Half Forward Flank

Sara is a native of California and first started playing footy for the LA Dragons, earning the best rookie award in her first year. Her athletic background prior to footy was field hockey, which gives her a leg up in fitness and hand-eye coordination. Sara’s small stature allows her to crumb the ball along the ground, as well as maneuver around the opposing team’s defense.

Jessie Coatney #7

Rookie

Jessie has a long history with a variety of sports, including rugby, basketball, volleyball, and golf. Her tenacity and desire to compete at her best ability is admirable. Her mental and physical toughness will give the Tigers a leg up on the oval. She is loyal and dedicated, encompassing what it means to be a Tiger.

Forward Pocket

Andi’s love for Aussie Rules is contagious. She first learned about the game after meeting her now-husband (who is a native of Melbourne, Australia). Her true passion lies with playing live-action Quidditch, but she shares her love for competition with the footy crowd, too. Andi is a dedicated, responsible, hard-working teammate who focuses on honing her skills any chance she gets. She regularly crumbs for the ball in forward pocket and works hard every chance she gets.

Kim Dickey #71

Member At-Large, Full Forward

Kim Dickey first learned of Aussie rules football in 2018. She participated in many athletics during her life, but footy was the first team sport she played.

Sydney Gonzales

Half Forward Flank

Sydney is one of our younger athletes. She first learned about footy in 2018. She has a basketball background, giving her and the Tigers the advantage during boundary throw-ins and ball ups. She’s got speed, strength, fearlessness and a competitive streak that make her a fierce competitor.

Alexis Koo #1

Member At-Large, Ruck Rover

“Koo” is undoubtedly the most-consistent athlete on the Tigers. Her ability to master technical skills make her a threat on the field. She doesn’t hesitate to crumb for the ball and sacrifice her body in midfield play–this shouldn’t be surprising seeing how she’s a Denver Firefighter. Koo makes for an excellent marking target, as she connects with teammates and marks the footy almost every time. Koo is a founding member.

Joliet Moya #3

Joliet “Baby J” Moya is one of the Tigers’ younger athletes. She was a star basketball player in high school, and her athleticism shows on the oval. Joliet protects her fellow on-ballers and never hesitates to throw a good hit on someone. She is an excellent crumber and regularly takes high marks. Joliet is a loyal teammate, and her comic relief always makes for a good time on and off the field.

Tami Nerenberg #5

Amanda Newell #16

Secretary, Back Pocket

Amanda dabbled in sports throughout her life, including soccer and rugby throughout her teenage years. She started playing footy in 2018 and has found her home in the back pocket.

Becca Pieseski #6

Fullback

Becca is in her fourth year of playing footy. She played rugby in college, and her ability to evade opponents is quite the thing to see. She works hard at defending the goal at the fullback position.
