The Oakland Raiders would like to congratulate Leizl on her selection as the "Raiderette of the Game" for the 2010 Regular Season Week 4. Leizl is in her second season with Football's Fabulous Females, and with her 20 years of dance experience, she is an asset to the team.
When asked what inspired her to return to the Raider organization for her second year, she says "I had an amazing time last year as a rookie. I am honored to continue the legacy, the friendships that developed into a sisterhood, performing in front of the Raider Nation, and the amount of service the organization does for its community."
Leizl was born in San Francisco, and graduated from San Jose State University in 2008 with a major in Advertising and a minor in Marketing. She was an active member of Alpha Phi Sorority and a volunteer to the American Heart Organization. She currently works as a Visual Assistant Manager for a major retail clothing store in the Bay Area, and aspires to stay within the fashion industry by obtaining her master's degree to become an advertising director for a major fashion publication.
She has learned various styles of cultural dance including the Hula and Tahitian dance. She and her family own land in the Philippines where they grow mangoes, tomatoes and vegetables. While she is not on the field dancing, Leizl devotes her time to Pilates, charity work, collecting magazines and studying nutrition.
She is honored that she is able to continue using her talent of performing through the Raiders Organization as a Raiderette, and proudly shares, "The Raider Nation has the most die hard fans in the NFL."
