Fifth Annual Ladies Football 101 includes meeting new coach
All women across the Lowcountry are invited to come to the Fifth Annual Ladies Football 101 event, sponsored by The Citadel Football Association. Designed for those who could already rival sportscasters with their play-by-play Bulldog commentary, to those who need to elevate their football savvy for the next tailgate party, this is a ladies‘- only evening of football, food and fun. And this year, Football 101 “students” will meet new Citadel Head Football Coach Mike Houston and his wife Amanda, as well as his coaching staff and their wives. The event will be held from 4:30 – 9:30 p .m. on Friday, July 18, with proceeds benefiting the association’s scholarship fund*.
“I’m addicted to college football, especially Bulldogs’ football,” said Kathleen Cartland, a long-time Bulldogs season-ticket holder. “But it doesn’t matter what you know or don’t know about the sport or the team. Each year I bring a friend to Football 101 at The Citadel hoping she’ll become as enthusiastic as me. “
