Introducing Kylie Bahr, a remarkable young woman whose vibrant personality and exceptional athletic skills make her an ideal ambassador for Fan inc. Born in Boston but raised in the scenic landscapes of Colorado, Kylie has managed to distinguish herself as an extraordinary student-athlete, all by the young age of 19. Her story and accomplishments serve as a source of inspiration for young women everywhere.

Memories That Bind

Her passion for soccer was fostered in the classrooms of a public school, eventually leading her to transfer to a private institution renowned for its outstanding athletic department. This experience opened up a world of possibilities for Kylie, as she was able to grow both academically and athletically. What does Kylie cherish the most from these pivotal years? It's the moment when her friend joined her at the private school, a decision that strengthened a friendship that today flourishes on the soccer grounds of Texas Tech University. Not far behind this cherished memory is the beloved tradition of the Senior Lunch, a momentous occasion that Kylie holds dear. It was not just about the game; it was about creating memories that would last a lifetime.

An Athlete's Grind

Kylie thrives in the competitive environment of collegiate soccer. She appreciates the high stakes, stating, "It's like having two full-time jobs." The mornings are filled with runs, practices, and training sessions. Evenings are consumed by coursework and studying in spite of the demanding nature of her schedule, she remains focused and uses the vast resources provided by Texas Tech University, including tutors and tailored class schedules. Kylie stays on top of her rigorous coursework. The incredible work ethic she demonstrates is a testament to her love for the sport and her commitment to academic excellence. 

Future Horizons: Balancing Sports and Business

Kylie's eyes are set on the future. While her major in Business Marketing may seem unrelated to her sports career, it's a carefully chosen path. Her aspirations in the sports industry, including a potential career in sports broadcasting, reflect her strategic thinking. She is not just an athlete; she's an entrepreneur in the making, recognizing opportunities and preparing to seize them.

Inspired by the Greats

If given a chance to share a meal with a renowned athlete, Kylie would pick the formidable Mallory Pugh, an inspiration to her due to Pugh's unwavering dedication and tenacity. Kylie's respect for successful women in sports, like Pugh, mirrors her own ambitions and unyielding resolve—traits that have undeniably contributed to her accomplishments both on the soccer field and beyond. Her respect for such athletes shows a young woman inspired to break barriers, a young woman who sees no ceiling to her dreams and is willing to put in the work to achieve them.

Embracing the Business of Sports: The NIL Rights

The recent introduction of NIL (Name, Image, and Likeness) rights is more than a mere change in regulations for Kylie; it represents a doorway to opportunities, growth, and empowerment within her field. Her fervent endorsement of these rights highlights her insightful grasp of the intertwined nature of sports and business. Recognizing the significance of personal branding, she sees its potential to sculpt not only her own professional path but also to influence the direction and future of the sports industry itself.

Personal Interests: Beyond the Soccer Field

When it comes to personal interests, Kylie's favorites reveal her fun-loving personality. Now a Texas resident, she's developed a love for country music. She's a fan of the movie 'Stepbrothers', and TV shows like 'Friends' and 'Suits'. Despite her busy schedule, she makes time for attending church with her teammates and, of course, indulging in her love for shopping. Her teammates often tease her about her extensive wardrobe, dubbing her closet a "community closet".

The Foundation: Family and Faith

Beyond her achievements, Kylie is keen on acknowledging the blessings in her life. She deeply appreciates the unwavering support of her family, noting their presence at every single game. Kylie’s bond with her mom is particularly strong; she considers her not just a parent, but a best friend. And, she cherishes her Christian community, who continues to provide her with support and encouragement.


So here's to Kylie Bahr - a star athlete, a devoted student, and an inspiring young woman whose journey continues to be a testament to the power of perseverance and dedication. As Fan inc.'s student-athlete ambassador, she represents the very best of what sports and academia can offer, and we couldn't be prouder to have her on our team.
