Participation nearly doubles from last year’s event
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Sept. 13, 2014) – A record number of approximately 75 participants were on hand Saturday morning inside the ETSU/MSHA Athletics Center for the second annual Carl Torbush Women's Football 101 Clinic.
“The numbers have almost doubled from last year’s clinic to this one,” said Torbush. “Our coaches really enjoyed participating and I think the ladies really enjoyed it as well. We had a great turnout with a lot of things going on around the program right now. I expect our numbers next year for the event to increase again.”
The day began with registration and a continental breakfast around 8:15 a.m. Offense and defense tutorials from ETSU assistant coaches Mike O’Cain, Erik Losey, Billy Taylor and Teddy Gaines followed before all gathered for a group photo.
Additional teaching segments covering equipment, officiating, kicking game and strength & conditioning then occurred prior to a tour of the new weight and locker rooms.
Subsequently, the women had the opportunity to put their newly-acquired knowledge to the test with on-field drills and sessions inside the Dome to close out the day.
The participants – which included ETSU employees, students and fans – were also given an ETSU football t-shirt and had the opportunity to win prizes donated by Wellington’s Restaurant, Austin Springs Spa and Bowman Jewelers.
Proceeds raised from the clinic will benefit the ETSU Football Kickoff Fund. To contribute to the Kickoff Fund, click here and stay tuned to ETSUBucs.com for upcoming events.
