Trinity Rodman, daughter of Dennis, credits mother Michelle for pushing her to NWSL: ‘She’s my role model’


- Advertisment -

Trinity Rodman gets plenty of questions about her father — NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman — but it’s actually her mother who Rodman admires most.

Selected No. 2 overall in the NSWL draft in January, Trinity credited her mother, Michelle, for providing a strong support system, according to Caitlin Murray of The Guardian. 

“Having a dad like I do, no one asks about my mom because she’s obviously not an NBA star, but I just want people to know that my mom’s been my support system in everything in life and she’s my best friend and my rock,” Rodman said. “I don’t think people know how close we are and, even though she wasn’t in the NBA, she has an extremely competitive and driven mindset, and she’s an extremely strong woman. She’s my role model.”

Trinity noted everyone asks about her father, which makes sense. Dennis Rodman is one of the best rebounders and defenders in NBA history. He won five championships over his 14-year career. He’s also known for his off-court behavior, which included frequent partying, multiple DUIs and allegations of sexual assault and domestic violence

Dennis married Michelle in 2003. They divorced in 2012.

The Washington Spirit selected Rodman with the No. 2 overall pick in the draft despite Rodman never playing a minute of college soccer. Rodman’s freshman season at Washington State was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She has played for the U.S. under-20 national team.

With the pick, Rodman became the youngest woman ever drafted in the NWSL.

Rodman reportedly was going to wear No. 91 at Washington State as a tribute to her father, who wore the number in the NBA, according to the Washington Post.
