Trinity Rodman, Dennis Rodman’s daughter, is ready to make her own name in pro soccer. Trinity Rodman is the youngest player ever to be drafted into the National Women’s Soccer League, and the 18-year-old is busy packing up her college dorm room at Washington State University in Pullman.
Her father’s NBA career was quite a success and the news that “Dennis Rodman’s daughter” entering the 2021 NWSL draft spread like wildfire across social media. Even the most inattentive sports fans took notice, and as a result, much of Trinity’s own story was overlooked as people reminisced on the elder Rodman’s antics on and off the court.
While she understands the hype and says there are similarities in how they approach sport — their competitiveness, aggressiveness and drive are characteristics she picks out — he is also just her dad.
When ESPN aired “The Last Dance,” a series that focused on Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls’ 1997-98 season (Dennis Rodman’s final year with the Bulls), Trinity says she didn’t watch much of it because she kept falling asleep.
