Here's where the story falls down for me. It starts from an SF-heavy beginning and goes on to a simple near-SF-free plot about a girl trying to get onto a football squad. Then it goes on to a football game, which isn't really SF, except most of the players are furry. Finally it ends on a discussion of identity and heads back to its SF beginnings.
I also can't decide if it's being a critic of the game or a proponent. While it talks about the dirt that goes on in the game and behind the scenes, the big exciting game at the end is hard to follow unless you can follow football commentary.
So it's a sort of good start with a sort of bad middle and a sort of good ending.
Conclusion: Not a bad story, not a good one.
