Heather Furr is a American football quarterback in the LFL for the Chicago Bliss and LFL Canada's Saskatoon Sirens. In 2013, she led the Bliss to a championship in the Legends Cup.

Playing career


Playing on offense and defense in 2013, Furr’s numbers were nothing short of solid. Furr ranked third in passing with a 91.2 passer rating. With a 52.6 completion percentage, she also contributed with 5 rushing touchdowns to rank second on the Bliss. Defensively, she was also a force to be reckoned with. Her 29 total tackles led the squad while tying for first in all of LFL. In addition, her 4 interceptions also tied for first overall. It was hardly a surprise when she was recognized as the LFL’s Most Valuable Player for 2013. In the first game of the 2013 LFL season, the Bliss was defeated 31-18 by the three-time defending champion Los Angeles Temptation. Despite the disappointment, Furr and the Bliss showed great composure, enjoying a six-game winning streak that culminated with the league championship. Victories over key opponents such as Las Vegas, division rivals Minnesota and Green Bay (which featured Erler) were complemented by postseason redemption versus LA and an upset of the undefeated Seattle Mist.

LFL Canada

Furr spent her 2012 with the Saskatoon Sirens of the Canadian division of Legends Football League. While Furr contributed primarily as a receiver and defensive back (due to Anne Erler as quarterback), she was a key factor in the Sirens qualifying for the league’s championship game. Despite being regular season champions, Furr and her teammates were defeated by the BC Angels.
