The apple doesn't fall far from the tree when it comes to the Rodman family. Dennis Rodman's daughter Trinity Rodman achieved the unthinkable only at the age of 19 and became the best-paid player in the National Women's Soccer League.
Making history in the NWSL
The Washington Spirits offered her a four-year deal worth $1.1 million, which was a significant bump from her existing salary, especially since she was only making $42,000 with the agreement she had previously with the Spirits.
Her contract with the reigning champions of NWSL will last until 2025, and she will earn $281,000 per year with the hopes of helping her team win another title. She established herself as one of the youngest female superstars in the league and was the only one from her team to get invited to the US Women's National Team.
Trinity Rodman had a good role model in her dad when it comes to sports
The future is definitely bright for Trinity, and many believe she will reach the heights of other famous athletes in the sport, which is something she learned from her dad, the unforgettable Dennis Rodman, who is an absolute NBA legend and one of the most iconic players in NBA history.
Rodman was a multiple NBA champion, one of the best defenders and rebounders the game has ever seen, and a relentless worker that was known for sacrificing everything to become who he was in the league. Trinity was obviously able to learn something from her dad, who was a crucial member of two iconic teams in NBA history, which obviously served as some inspiration for her daughter, who chose to be a professional athlete.
Although soccer and basketball are two different sports, it's great to hear another Rodman is taking over a sport in her own fashion, just like her dad did over 30 years ago when he started his legendary NBA career.
