While her team will take a leap of faith on college prospects this week in the NFL Draft, Tennessee Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk was busy taking a leap of a different kind on Monday.
Strunk accepted an invitation from the 101st Airborne in Fort Campbell, Ky., to skydive with the Army’s Golden Knights.
It was an offer she readily accepted.
“When he said, ‘We want you to jump out of an airplane,’ my mouth flew open and my heart started beating,” Strunk told the team’s official website. “But then I was like, ‘I’m in, let’s do it.’”
According to the site, Strunk initially thought she was going to do a rappel exercise with the soldiers. Instead, it was the chance to jump out of plane.
The team tweeted out video of Strunk’s jump, in which he landed on her feet.

“You get a little flash of anxiety,’’ Strunk said. “But I took a deep breath, and we were off…
“I think I tried to say ‘Titan Up’ as I went out.”
This is the first time for the team owner to perform such a feat, but not the first time for a dive by a team employee. In 2008, then-Titans head coach Jeff Fisher did a skydive from a helicopter into a team practice.
