Jonesboro (ASU) - A large crowd was in attendance at the fourth-annual ASU Women's Football Clinic Tuesday night at ASU Stadium. The clinic was sponsored by J&S Restaurant Group and HMG and was hosted by the Red Wolves football coaching staff.
All proceeds from the event went to benefit the ASU Tickets for Kids program. The event began with a 5:00 p.m. dinner catered by Hank Oxford and introductions from ASU Head Football Coach Steve Roberts.
"We are once again very pleased with the response the community has given this event," said Gleen Hart, ASU Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing and Promotions. "The clinic has been extremely popular each year and is a fun way for the women in the Jonesboro area to familiarize themselves with Red Wolves football. We are also very thankful to the area vendors who help make the event a success every year."
Following dinner and a tour of the ASU Football Complex, the women broke into groups to meet with position coaches to watch video footage and learn basic rules and strategies of football. They also learned about formations, equipment and several other aspects of college football.
A "Helmets & Heels" fashion show was sponsored by HMG and allowed those attending the clinic to view fashions and accessories suited for tailgating and football games.
The event closed with a trip to the ASU practice fields, where the women went through different stations to practice passing, receiving, kicking, tackling and blocking drills.
Prizes such as gift certificates from area businesses and tickets and apparel from ASU Athletics were awarded to many of the attendees, and the grand prize that one participant took home was a portable DVD playe
