The Ottawa University women’s flag football team’s roster is rounding into shape for the 2021 spring season.

The Lady Braves signed Briana Bidom, of Riverview, Fla. She is a transfer from Hillsborough Community College. Bido attended Riverview High School, where she was a teammate of OU signee Madysen Carrera.

The defensive back/receiver lettered in flag football and volleyball at Riverview High School. Bido helped the Sharks to the 2018 District final. In 2018, she earned second team all-conference honors and was named honorable mention all-state by the Florida Athletic Coaches Association. She also earned academic all-state honors.

Bido was named team captain, along with Carrera, in her senior year. Off the playing field, she helped coach her younger sister’s middle school flag football team.

Bido graduated in the top 5% of her class and was voted “best smile” by her classmates at RHS. She plans to major in exercise science.
