Tina was born in California, grew up in Clear Lake, SD, and currently resides in Revillo, SD with her husband (Michael) and for kids (Ava 13, Bentley 12, Erich 10, and Noah 3). She played a little sports in high school and enjoys watching football with her family, particularly watching her boys on the field. Tina will even be talking to the sidelines of her boys’ football team this coming season to help coach their youth football. She wants to be part of women empowerment, showing women they can do anything men can do.
Tina is a determined player with a low shoulder and a “coming at ya” attitude, making her a feared running back by opposing linebackers and earning the commonly stated huddle encouragement on our bread and butter plays – Truck ‘em Tina!
Tina Fokken just finished her second season with the Snow Leopards, splitting time at running back and offering her admirable I’ll do anything, do it hard, and do it well attitude to defense as well where she saw a handful of plays at linebacker. Her intentionality to build off of the knowledge, skills, and tenacity of her 2021 inaugural year and her off-season and pre-season training paid off in year two of her pro football career.
Offensively, Tina finished the season #9 in our WFA Division for rushing with 79 total yards in 34 carries in 4 games (averaging 2.3 yards per carrying) with a season long run play of 10 yards…and punching in one touchdown and one two-point conversion. Defensively, even coming in mid-season as a relief linebacker, she picked off the ball twice for a season total of 2 interceptions.
We’re proud to call her our teammate. Thanks for a memorable year two, Tina – proud to have you back!
