When Janet and Morne Stramrood moved from Johannesburg, South Africa in 2001, it was supposed to be just for a couple of years. In the midst of what was set to be a short stint in the United States, their first daughter Lorelai arrived.
At that time, little did Janet know 19 years later they would be sitting in the stands on a Friday night watching their daughter send away kickoffs and be the full-time extra-point and field-goal kicker for the Tomball Memorial Wildcats football team.
"We know nothing about football, we grew up with rugby and cricket," Janet said with a chuckle. "I never learned about football because I have two daughters. I didn't even think I would have to learn the game. Of course, she would throw a curveball at me.
"I'm now learning the game sitting in the stands with all the parents around me educating me on what she's doing and all of that. It's been interesting."
