Write Up:
It was perfect day to teach some football. The class was held on the Sunday before the NFL season began. It started at 1 pm to coincide with when NFL games begin (at least on the East Coast). The class was designed to teach women about the game of football. It covered everything from some history to what the purpose of the players are on the field. The ladies were great students and had some very good questions about the game. They picked up very quickly some of the more complicated ideas of the game. Toward the end of the game we watched an NFL game. The women were watching the game with a noticeably different eye. I was able to pause the game and ask questions about what was going on during each play. These women were able to recognize the offensive formations and the defensive fronts. They were also said when the team was blitzing and which player on offense had the ball. I was also able to show them how to see the hole the running back was running in and explain plays as to why things happen the way they do. They really absorbed all the information. They all said they felt better about football and are looking forward to watching a game.
