The Scarlet Knight showed what a star she is once again, this time on the grid iron

Soccer: Womens World Cup Champions-Parade Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

As NFL training camps are entering the home stretch in late August, Rutgers legend Carli Lloyd brought her star power to a Philadelphia Eagles practice on Tuesday. Visiting along with the rest of her teammates from the World Cup champion United States Women’s National Team, Lloyd showed off her big leg by attempting and MAKING a 55 yard field goal.

She impressed the Eagles for sure.

We really shouldn’t be surprised anymore with anything that Lloyd does on the pitch, soccer or otherwise. Very cool moment and just another reason to cherish the fact this generational athlete is a Rutgers alumna and Hall of Famer.

Could Lloyd, who plays professionally for the Sky Blue FC of the National Women’s Soccer League, parlay this moment into something bigger in the NFL? Of course she could silly, because she is Carli Lloyd. However she likely is happier playing as long as she can on the soccer field.

Today was just a reminder of what a legend Lloyd truly is.
