Big Turnout for Second Annual Women’s Football 101
BUFFALO, NY – Nearly 70 women attended the second annual Women's Football 101 at UB Stadium on Tuesday night. Head Coach Jeff Quinn and his staff as well as players put the women through drills and taught them the basics of football to help them better understand the game.
Proceeds from the event went to Breast Cancer Network of Western New York.
"The purpose is not only to bring more women on campus and teach them a little bit more about football at the collegiate level - but also in conjunction with our efforts to help fight breast cancer," said UB head football coach Jeff Quinn.
Women participating in the event ran drills on the field as well as sat in on nutrition and weight training seminars.
"There is no fight better than the fight to beat cancer," Football 101 Chairperson Shannon Quinn said. "What a great way for us to give back to Western New York by meeting up with these women."
The Breast Cancer Network of Western New York's mission is to provide education, advocacy and support for people involved with breast cancer. For more information visit http://www.bcnwny.org.
