When Gonzalez joined the New Orleans Gators alongside her sister, Dakota, the head trainer, Donald Hogan, said the sisters "have what it takes to be stars in this league."
The league was added as co-ed and the sisters told Slam it was time to "go big."
Does Dylan Gonzalez have any siblings?
Gonzalez has six siblings, three sisters and four brothers. She and her twin sister, Dakota are 27 years old, and she has two other sisters, Natalia and Gaby, and three brothers, Conor, Javier, and Stefan.
The twin sisters became basketball stars in college but took a break in their senior year to focus on music.
At the time, they reportedly said their decision was based on the complex rules from the NCAA.
according to an Idaho State Journal article in 2018.
According to an Idaho State Journal article in 2018, Dakota told Schaap, “The main thing that made us decide not to go back (to college basketball) was the rules and restrictions and regulations that were pretty much enforced by the NCAA."
“We actually had intentions of going back to play, and then we started getting slapped with violations on things we had no idea were even violations because, in their ancient rule book with a million infractions, they just find anything to kind of pin you.”
However, after their break from basketball, Gonzalez and her sister stepped back into the limelight and signed on to play for the New Orleans Gators co-ed team.
“We want to inspire young ladies [and] just people in general to pursue their passions,” Dylan told Slam.
“And hopefully if we are open about that, it can open that door for people to go for whatever.”
