On Wednesday, Sheila Ford Hamp introduced herself to the local media via a Zoom audio conference call just hours after being named the new owner of the Detroit Lions. After team president Rod Wood gave a brief introduction, Ford Hamp took over, answering several questions about the future of the team, the inspiration she took from her mother, Martha Firestone Ford, and her insatiable desire to win.
