    Lois Roberts (barefoot quarterback) is my mom! She also played pro baseball (barefoot) in LA and Chicago. This is the first video I\'ve ever seen of her football days and am so grateful I was tipped off by filmmaker Adam Chu of it\'s existence. She died in 2011 at the age of 91. An amazingly talented woman.
