The NFL announced that as part of a commemoration of “Run With It,” the league’s Emmy-award-winning spot for Super Bowl LVII, Flag football star Diana Flores has become the first Flag football player with artifacts in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The jersey Flores wore in the commercial and her football signed by sports icon Billie Jean King and New York Jets’ Sauce Gardner, who were also in the spot, are officially part of the museum’s collection, marking a historic moment for the sport of Flag football.
“I’m honored to have my jersey become a part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame collection, alongside NFL Legends and football stars I greatly admire,” said Flores. “This is so meaningful not just for me personally, but also for Flag football overall. It’s hugely symbolic in showing football is for everyone, especially women and girls.”

Flores is the Mexico Women’s National Flag Football team quarterback, The World Games 2022 champion, Chair of the International Federation of American Football (IFAF) Athletes’ Committee and most recent AFC offensive coordinator at The Pro Bowl Games alongside AFC head coach Peyton Manning.
She starred in “Run With It,” the NFL’s blockbuster campaign for Super Bowl LVII, which spotlighted Flag football and some incredible moves by trailblazing women in the sport. For the first time ever, the league rooted its Super Bowl spot in Flag football, with Flores at the forefront.
“‘Run With It’ was a historic moment for the NFL, as we took our biggest platform of the year to feature not just Flag football, but specifically how women are changing the game and inspiring generations of athletes to come,” said Marissa Solis, NFL SVP of Global Brand and Consumer Marketing. “Flag football is one of the league’s most important long-term strategies, and to have Diana’s artifacts officially become a part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame is tangible recognition that Flag football is here to stay and will only continue to grow. She may be the first Flag player to become part of the museum’s collection, but she certainly won’t be the last!”
