It isn't uncommon for the children of celebrities to follow in their footsteps, whether it be as actors or as athletes. Football star Trinity Rodman's last name may ring a bell — the youngest person to ever be drafted in the NWSL is the daughter of former NBA star Dennis Rodman. Dennis is best known for his legendary defence and rebounding with the Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls, among other teams.

At 21 years old, Trinity has already established a name for herself separate from her famous dad. She was drafted by the Washington Spirit in the 2021 NWSL draft when she was 18, and just two years later, she is one of 14 newcomers on the United States women's national football team for the 2023 World Cup, per Time.

Trinity attributes her passion, drive, and worth ethic to her athletic father and strong-willed mother, Michelle Moyer. To develop her skills, she studied film of her dad's technique on the court and incorporated some of those same moves in her own sport. "It was timing, it was anticipation. It was body movement. It was positioning. It was everything. He was so intelligent," the star explained to Time.

Moyer raised Trinity and Trinity's brother, DJ Rodman, mostly on her own following her 2004 split from Dennis. Trinity credits her mom as her biggest influence both on and off the field. During Trinity's youth, Moyer provided her with the financial, motivational, and emotional support to begin playing football, even when they didn't have the means to do so. "Having a dad like I do, no one asks about my mom because she's obviously not an NBA star, but I just want people to know that my mom's been my support system in everything in life and she's my best friend and my rock," she revealed to The Guardian.
