Lisa DuPont grew up an only child in Bronx, New York where basketball was a means for father-daughter bonding. While still only an infant her parents had divorced with her father taking full custody. Because of this DuPont grew up rather quickly, often taking time to take care of both herself and her father, anything to lighten the load for a man with a broken heart. However, not wanting DuPont to miss out on her childhood her father tried his best to engage and have fun with her, thus her love for basketball began to bud. Her father would meet DuPont at her junior high school’s courtyard most days after school and challenge her to a game of one on one, usually with the reward of Badger King or Steerbucks if she beat him. Unfortunately, Mr. DuPont had to learn the hard way what a mistake his little challenge would be on his wallet (and their stomachs) as his daughter picked up the sport in no time at all. By the time DuPont finished junior high school she had found a great love for the sport, often running circles around her old man.
Lisa DuPont had realized her skill, and with that, a fiery determination to take her love to new heights. She would eventually learn how literal her ambition was. Not shy to facing challenges head on she applied and was accepted to the illustrious Eagle Academy, a previously all-avian college preparatory high school in Manhattan, with aspirations of becoming a Golden Eagle. The school, however, new to accepting a broader demographic, was hesitant in accepting DuPont onto their basketball team due to her size and physical disadvantages when compared to the avian members of the team. DuPont had also decided to focus heavily on the sciences which Eagle Academy’s coach D’Souza warned would make keeping up with the rest of the team while maintaining a satisfactory grade point average extremely challenging for her. DuPont, however, was acutely aware that she did not hear the word “no” from D’Souza. Her entire freshman year was stubbornly spent focusing on her studies and practicing in the gym. Whenever she could DuPont would peak through the windows while the team was practicing and attended all their games all while taking notebooks worth of notes and ideas for her to use during her private practices. At the start of her sophomore year she went to coach D’Souza and her principal, Mr. Mason, and told them everything she had done the previous year. She implored them that they allow her on the team as she felt she not only could keep up with the team but also had ideas on how to help improve the team. Impressed, D’Souza and Mason agreed to let her participate in practice and discuss her ideas with the rest of the team, but it would not be until her junior year, after she had proven she indeed could handle keeping up with practice while maintain a grade point average above 3.5, that she would officially be considered a Golden Eagle. D’Souza was no doubt inspired by DuPont’s determination and ambition as she was pushed to keep up with the rest of the team. This included strict workout regiments strengthening her legs to help her to jump as high as the rest of the team who had the advantage of using the one-flap rule. He grew to become very proud of her and helped nurture this fire in DuPont but knew she had much to learn if she wanted to continue down this path.
In 2014, Lisa graduated valedictorian and received a glowing recommendation from her teachers and, of course, coach D’Souza to his alma mater, Sauropsida, a predominately avian and reptilian university. In familiar fashion DuPont majored in biochemistry despite her advisor’s warnings of the difficulties of balancing academics and athletics. Though her ambitious had stayed the same as she transition from high school to college, she would find that both college academics and athletics would be on a completely different level than what she was used to. DuPont had to remember her coach’s advice to her before she left Eagle Academy. “Girl, you’ve got the drive and you’re stubborn as all get out,” D’Souza told DuPont, “but let me tell you. You’re going to get 99.9% of your learning outside of those textbooks and classrooms. University will chew you up and spit you out and hold your weaknesses over your head, and there will always be someone fighting harder than you, fighting against you. You are more than what you are. Adapt, Lisa. Grow and give ‘em hell.” A hard lesson for an eighteen-year-old to learn, but one DuPont took to heart. DuPont joined the chess club, became the president of the Fur vs. Zombies activity group, and took classes like archery to strengthen her problem solving, leadership, and perceptive skills. These were all skills she needed to compete with some of her reptilian competitors on the basketball court.
Lisa DuPont grow immensely throughout her college career and her experiences have greatly influenced and improved her skills on the court. She has showed great leadership on and off the court and developed creative means of problem solving as one would during a chess match. Thanks to her experiences and training both at Sauropsida and Eagle Academy DuPont can also jump incredibly high, giving her avian cohorts a run for their money. Her time spent with some of Sauropsida’s reptilian athletes along with her extracurricular activities, too, have proven to expand her perceptive abilities on the court, allowing her to better calculate how to get the ball where it needs to be. DuPont has always been up to the challenge no matter what they may bring. Having just graduated in May of 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry and a grade point average 3.94, DuPont has proven she is willing and very much capable of achieving whatever goal she sets her sights for. Lisa DuPont has shown time and time again that no matter what obstacle may come her way she will adapt, she will grow, and she will absolutely give ‘em hell.
Scar and Tattoo
When Lisa was young her father was constantly upset, blaming himself for the reason Lisa didn’t have a mother. He had gotten a divorce when she was only 3 months old and felt responsible. He was inconsolable most of the time, leaving Lisa to be the adult and take care of him. She worked at a grocery store after school and would help pay some of the bills. Eventually, her father started dating around to remedy this and help get himself back onto his feet until, unfortunately, it became an addiction for him. Soon, he was bringing girls home most every night, forcing Lisa to wait outside her apartment building until he was done with them. This was especially worse around the time she started her junior year of high school when her father started bringing multiple girls home at a time.
At the same time, Lisa was going through a major breakup with her then boyfriend. She was dating the son of her father’s old love. Her father had suggested the two get together so that he himself could get closer to this woman. When Lisa and her boyfriend broke up, her father tried to get her into a relationship with the ex’s older brother. When her ex-boyfriend found out, there was a major fight between the brothers involving weapons and, ultimately, surgery. Lisa was caught in the middle of this, leaving the entire family to blame her for what had happened.
There were many other things causing stress for Lisa around this same time. She was being advised against going to college or even trying to enter the FBA. She developed appendicitis, which went undiagnosed for some time due to the location of the pain. It wasn’t until an MRI discovered that she has situs inversus totalis, a condition where the entire torso is mirrored. This unknown status left the doctors confused as to the description of Lisa’s pain since normally pain from appendicitis would be describe as coming from the right side rather than the left. Because of this Lisa was advised only to take pain killers for several days until this mistake was finally rectified and she underwent surgery.
Having no one to turn to in her most desperate time of need, at the age of 17, Lisa attempted to hang herself. She was found by her “uncle,” Eric, in her Livingroom closet with a rope tied around her neck and shelving, along with everything that was on the shelves on top of her, passed out. She awoke in her apartment on a stretcher, just before being wheeled into an ambulance and taken to the hospital. What’s worse, when her father came to visit her at the hospital, instead of consoling her, he when up to her and yelled at her, stating that she was no longer his daughter.
The attempt left a scar around her neck where fur no longer grows, a blemish she never wanted the world to see. But after it was accidentally exposed during the Las Vegas Wildcard’s home game with the Texas Lone Stars on February 15th, 2019, Lisa held a press conference to address her scar and stated that she will be donating 65% of her FBA earnings to suicide prevention. On September 28th, 2019, Lisa got a tattoo to cover the scar on her neck, something she’s wanted to do since the incident. The tattoo is of a phoenix bird, fitting to represent a sort of rebirth from the old Lisa to the new. Lisa now dawns her neck with pride, showing others that it’s not too late too start over and be stronger than ever before.
