Oana Dumitrescu was born in Bucharest, Romania and immigrated to Portland, Oregon with her family when she was 10 years old. As a young political asylee, she retained the positive aspects of her roots and familial values, while embracing the American culture.
Oana's drive to lead and give back to her community, led to her professional experience of working in the home medical equipment industry for over 20 years as an executive leader, helping to improve the quality of lives for athletes, those with temporary and permanent disabilities and the elderly population.
With twin sons who played football from ages eight throughout high school, having herself spent many nights playing Offensive Line and Defensive Line, as well as being an NFL football fan, Oana is no stranger to football.
Oana believes that sports has the potential to amplify women's voices and tear down traditional gender norms and barriers. "Women in sports defy the surprisingly still-standing stereotype that women are not strong, as capable or athletically inclined. I want to provide an environment where women can focus on achieving their goals in football through hard work and dedication, so together we can achieve success."
You can catch Oana spending time with her twin sons, watching sports, creating deliciousness in the kitchen, cardio boxing, playing volleyball (her first love), and collecting driving accomplishments on the road. She has a great appreciation for a good, fast car!

Josh Bradford is a Portland native who dreamed of playing football on Sundays and started playing football, basketball and baseball at the young age of 10. His playing career in football spanned 12 seasons as he lettered all four years of high school, was awarded lineman of the year twice, 1st team all-conference offense and 2nd team all-conference defense, finishing his football career with two years at Rocky Mountain College in Montana.
His short but successful repertoire in coaching started in 2017 as a defensive line coach, but his love for the line recently moved him into coaching both positions for Roosevelt high school where he took co-part in the success of coaching 2 offensive and 2 defensive linemen to all-conference status, one of them also reaching defensive player of the year and 1st team all-state honors. The team ended this season as league champions. Alongside coaching, Josh also works as a campus monitor for the Parkrose School District in east Portland.
Bradford jumped at the chance of team ownership because he’s always felt the game of football changed his life and helped steer him in the right direction. He is determined to provide women the best experience possible playing the greatest game on earth. “After my first season coaching women, it was abundantly clear that the potential for women’s football is vast. I want to introduce more women to football and help women’s football grow.”

In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, soul food, 90’s hip hop music, and he prides himself on his sports trivia knowledge.

Asia’s passion for football began in 7th grade where she played QB on the boy’s team at Wind River Middle School. Asia then reconnected to women’s tackle football as a player in 2001 with her football journey leading her to becoming an Assistant Coach, Head Coach, and later, General Manager. She is used to breaking barriers, being the first-generation high school graduate in her family, and recognized as one of Portland Business Journal’s 40 under 40. Asia holds a B.A. in Psychology from Linfield and an MBA in Nonprofit Management from the University of Portland.
Asia currently serves as the Executive Director of Playworks PACNW where she supports the creation of positive environments in which youth thrive. Her role allows her to be a part of an organization whose mission increases in the overall health and well-being of our community with her motto being: live with intention, have integrity, choose compassion, and inspire hope. Outside the office, Asia is an avid Las Vegas Raider’s fan (seems fitting she joins a team whose colors are similar) and her family recently expanded in 2018 as Asia and wife welcomed their daughter, Olive.
Fast-forward to 2023, we’ve excited to have Asia now call the Oregon Ravens her football family and can’t wait to see her bring her knowledge of both non-profit management and love of football to the team.
