Wednesday Quick Hits

Updated: September 24, 2012 6:25AM



The prospects for the Bliss quarterback job could be up in the air for the 2011 season — in more ways than one.

Among the prospects at the Lingerie Football League’s tryouts Saturday in Bridge-view was Briawna Shultz, whose passing prowess impressed some observers.

She knows something about aerial activities.

The native of Albuquer­que, N.M., is a flight ­attendant.

She also knows something about football and tryouts.

‘‘It’s nerve-racking,’’ she told Quick Hits after making the cut to go to minicamp. ‘‘You don’t know what to ­expect. I grew up the ­daughter of a football coach, so I had a premise of maybe how tryouts would go.

‘‘Once we got started, it was natural. It felt good.’’

As for her throwing ­ability?

‘‘I was a catcher at the University of New Mexico, so I kinda grew up throwing balls,’’ she said.

Even if Shultz had lesser passing skills, she still would have stood out — thanks to a bright green sports top and shorts and black knee-high socks.

She wore the outfit so she would be noticed?

‘‘That’s what this is about, right?’’ she said.

Right on target once again.
