Angela Rypien is a American football quarterback in the LFL for the Baltimore Charm. She would make her LFL debut in 2011 with the Seattle Mist. Her father is Super Bowl XXVI Most Valuable Player Mark Rypien.

Playing career

LFL

She has been hired by two different teams in the Legends Football League.[1] She served as a quarterback for the Seattle Mist in 2011. She signed to play for the Baltimore Charm in 2012.[2][3] But the league management decided to cancel the 2012 season in the USA, and concentrate instead on exhibition matches in the USA, and promotion of foreign leagues.[4]

Rypien is one of the daughters of quarterback Mark Rypien, the only Canadian chosen as Super Bowl MVP when his team, the Washington Redskins, won Super Bowl XXVI.[5]

NBC News reported they were surprised that the Legends Football League allowed free agency, but added "But if you’re the daughter of former Redskins quarterback Mark Rypien, and a pretty intense player in your own right, I guess you do.".[6]

According to technology journalist Patrick Seitz, the league lacked stars in its early seasons, so the limited press coverage the league received treated it solely as a "peep show".[5] He asserted that Rypien and Krista Ford, due to the reflected notability of having famous relatives, were two potential stars the league could offer in its 2011 season—to counter the peep-show coverage.

LFL Canada

After the LFL US of 2013, a second consecutive LFL Canada season was planned. Of note, Rypien was recruited to compete for the Calgary Fillies. Unfortunately, the 2013 season was rescheduled for 2014.
