Butch And Barbs Football 101

Recently six hundred women gathered for an afternoon of football 101 at the University Of Tennessee.  And I was one of them.  After standing in line for some time while all of us registered and got our t-shirts, Head Coach Butch Jones began our event with a short speech, followed by each of the assistant coaches being introduced along with their wives.
We were all divided into seven groups that rotated through all the programs for the afternoon.  My group started on the field.  Who knew kicking could be so much fun!  Although I wasn't able to get the ball in the air, this was my favorite part of the event.  We had to go through about 7-8 more drills before we made our way back inside Anderson Training Center to tour the facilities.
