Game 1's Grittiest Player: Jess Britton

This year a key focus for the Dinos field hockey team is playing with grit and intensity. After each game a player is selected who best embodied this theme. Defender Jessica Britton certainly demonstrated these qualities during Saturday's match against the Vikes. Jessica is in her third year of health sciences, completing a Biomedicine major and hopes to go to med school and become a paediatric doctor.

 Her infectious positive attitude, shut down defence, and continuous hard work have made Jessica a stand out player already this season. As such, Jessica has a major leadership role within the team this year, and  was selected as one of the co- captains. Jessica is a natural leader both on and off the field, and always sets a positive example. Due to her outstanding leadership qualities she was selected to be part of the Dinos LEAD ((Leadership Education in Athlete Development) program, which is designed to make student-athletes impactful leaders on their teams and in the community.

What does it mean to you to be a gritty player?

I think some people can mistake “gritty” for “dirty”. To be a gritty player does not mean to play dirty, it means something as simple as playing with every intention to have possession of the ball, and working as hard as you possibly can to take the ball from the opposing team. If you want the ball, you want the ball and will do whatever it takes to get it. Being a gritty player is playing your heart out and leaving nothing on the pitch. 

Why did you choose to be a defender/ have you always played defence?

I initially chose to be a defender because that was the position I played in soccer. I don’t think I ever even tried playing midfield or forward – I played defence and I immediately loved it! I’ve always liked being one of the last men back – it’s fun to be the person who saves some goals and shuts people down!

What is your greatest accomplishment as an athlete?

My greatest accomplishment as an athlete is when my single A high school team won the bronze medal at AA Field Hockey Provincials – the majority of the tournament was comprised of private schools, so it was a very big achievement for our very small public school! I’m still proud and love to rep my Rossland Royals gear around campus every once in a while – my high school coach and team are the reasons why I’m a Dino today!

Who is your biggest fan?

My biggest fan is definitely my Granny. Although she may not be with us anymore, there’s nothing more comforting than knowing that she’s still cheering me on from up above! 

Do you have a favourite sports movie/ favourite motivational sports quote?

My favourite sports movie would have to be The Blind Side, but my favourite motivational sports quote is the "Inches by Inches" speech by Al Pacino from Any Given Sunday.

 What is one food that you cannot stand? Mushrooms. Definitely mushrooms. Who likes eating rubbery fungus? 

If you won a million dollars, what would you do with it?

SO MUCH. Firstly, I would travel to Rome and Nashville. I really want to see the coliseum and I’ve always wanted to go to the Grand Ole Opry! Then I would get rid of my student loans. And then I’d fund Dinos Field Hockey OF COURSE!!!
