NISKAYUNA, NY (WRGB)--Here in the Capital Region, practices are now underway for the "New York Knockout," a women's tackle football team that competes in the WFA.

There's currently 22 players on the Schenectady-based roster, some who come from as far as Pennsylvania and Lake Placid, all who bring varying degrees of experience.

While the sport still has a ways to go to reach the mainstream, Brittany Devane sat down with Knockout owner Melissa Messemer at a recent practice.
