Taft - known as 'The All-American Girl' by her colleagues - has been a regular on our screens for over a decade.

Born in Edina, Minnesota, Taft attended Boston University where she was a star on the lacrosse team.

She majored in Broadcast Journalism and graduated in 2010, joining FOX just a year later.

Taft worked as a sideline reporter for the Minnesota Lynx of the WNBA, eventually earning a promotion to FS1's news and highlights update team.

Her career has gone from strength to strength since, with Taft elevated to lead college football sideline reporter in 2017.

A huge soccer fan, she's been heavily involved in FOX's coverage for the men's and women's World Cup.

Taft will be front and center in Qatar this fall as the USMNT makes its first appearance at a finals since 2014.

Away from work, she has a true sporting pedigree and is the daughter of John Taft, a former professional ice hockey defenseman.

John was a member of Team USA's 1976 Winter Olympic roster, but missed out on a medal after the US finished fifth in the table.

He was also a two-time NCAA champion for the University of Wisconsin hockey team.

Taft married ex-NHL player Matt Gilroy in 2015 and the pair share one child together.

Gilroy also attended college in Boston and was a member of the 2018 US Men’s Olympic Hockey Team in South Korea.

The pair welcomed daughter Gigi to the world this March.

And Taft was delighted to let her army of 200k Instagram followers know the good news.

She wrote: "Feeling so lucky and blessed!

"Gigi has not officially decided on her favorite college football team, will report back when she makes her decision!"

You can catch Jenny on FOX and FS1 throughout the Qatar World Cup, before she returns to your screens for the remainder of the college football season.

Pele’s family give positive health update but reveal Brazil legend is in hospital with Covid-aggravated infection

PELE's family have given a positive health update but reveal the Brazil football legend is in hospital with a Covid-aggravated infection.

The 82-year-old, who won the World Cup three times with his country from 1958 to 1970, was hospitalised earlier this week after he stopped responding to chemotherapy as he battles bowel cancer.

Reports had surfaced that Pele had been moved to palliative end-of-life care in hospital.

However, Pele's family have said that it is not true and the football icon is "in a regular bedroom" but is fighting a "lung infection".

And once he has fully recovered he will leave the Albert Einstein hospital in Sao Paulo.

Daughter Kely Nascimento said in an interview with TV Globo that aired Sunday night: "He is sick, he is old.

"But at the moment, he is there because of the lung infection. And once he feels better, he will go home again.

"He is not saying goodbye in a hospital at the moment."

Pele's other daughter, Flavia, added: "It is very unfair for people to say he is in the end of his life, in palliative care. Guys, that’s not true. Believe us.

"He is not in intensive care, he is in a regular bedroom. He is not in risk, he is in treatment.”

Pele has been moved by the tributes pouring in from across the football world, but his grandson, Arthur, says his time hasn't come and he will see Brazil lift a sixth World Cup.

Arthur said: "I see people telling me ‘rest in peace’ (for Pele). One day it will happen, but it is not today.

"He is going to be well, it is a matter of time. He will see Brazil lift the sixth title.”

Brazil are one of the favourites to lift the World Cup in Qatar and begin their knockout campaign on Monday.

They face South Korea, who pulled off a shock win over Portugal in their last group game.

Superstar Neymar is expected to play after overcoming an ankle injury that ruled him out of Brazil's final two group fixtures.
