It’s already been a whirlwind year for DeSoto resident Nancy Erickson, but the good news just keeps coming.

Two weeks ago, she and other members of the 1970s Toledo Troopers football team became the inaugural inductees into the Women’s Football Federation’s Hall of Fame. The Troopers won seven consecutive National Women’s Football League titles from 1971-’77, and were recognized by the National Football League’s Hall of Fame in 1983 as being the winningest team in professional football history.
