Through all the jokes, teaching, and even a reference to a Nordstrom’s sale, the Coppell High School football coaches taught mothers and ladies alike all they could about the game of football.

 

Whether it was running through step-by-step of an offensive play or explaining what a quarterback was, the Football 101 meeting on Tuesday night at the CHS fieldhouse was a huge success in the eyes of everyone.

 

“I thought it was a great night and all the coaches did a great job of explaining everything to all of us ladies,” attendee Kaylee Schultz said. “It was an excellent event and I really enjoyed it.”

Coach Mike DeWitt, a key advocate for the meeting himself, had high hopes that he wanted the meeting to be, and they were met with over 100 in attendance.

 

“We wanted it to be informative and just teach some basics,” DeWitt said. “We went over rules and calls but we also wanted to just make sure these ladies would be ‘in the know’ of what we are doing on the field during the game. We also finally just wanted to get the ladies together and have some fellowship, and so I think it all went well.”

 

Between tight ends coach Matt Smith, defensive coordinator Kirk McBride, DeWitt and offensive coordinator Jay Jones, each aspect of the meeting had lots of takeaways yet lots of laughs from everyone watching.

 

With the success of the night, it would only be fair for DeWitt to already start thinking to the future.
“I would definitely like to do this again next year and in the future,” DeWitt said. “If we get anymore people to come, we might have to move rooms, there was a ton of people that came. But since all the ladies seemed to love it, we should definitely do this again.”
