Angel Palacios - Motherhood



Angelica Palacios is no stranger to the athletic arena. She graduated from Legacy High School in Mansfield, Texas, where she met and ran track with her fiancé Tevin Mitchel of the Indianapolis Colts. However, it was her insatiable love for soccer that would ultimately direct her destiny. She started playing recreational soccer at the age of four, then later through select leagues from age 12 through high school. She began her college career in 2010 at Ouachita Baptist University where she quickly earned a starting position her Freshman year. During a drill her sophomore year, she obtained a head injury that forced her to retire from the sport that so passionately drove her. This incident inspired Palacios to join forces with three college football players in leading the fight to protect all college athletes suffering from head injuries. The athletes filed a suit requesting that the NCAA be held responsible for creating and enforcing a standard concussion policy for all NCAA schools. Over the three year period, eight other male athletes joined them in a victorious battle that no less than changed college sports forever. Palacios remained the only female advocate.

She now lives in Indianapolis, Indiana with Mitchel and their two beautiful children. Palacios defines herself as woman of God whose most vital role is currently being a full-time stay at home mom to 2 year-old son Jayden and 6 month old daughter Ariana. Though motherhood is what brings her the greatest fulfillment, she is thrilled to be a part of the WAGS team. Her goal is to be a living example for the redefinition of "WAGS" as well as a devoted contributor to WAGS Redefined.
