DENTON (8/5/05) - Over a 100 women attended the first-ever football clinic last night at the Mean Green Athletic Center on Bonnie Brae.
"The clinic was a tremendous success, and I am very pleased with the way that everything went," said North Texas head football coach Darrell Dickey. "It's great to see so many people getting excited to learn, and we hope we were able to provide a little insight into the game. It is encouraging to know that there is such a huge interest in Mean Green football, and we hope that this is the first of many more events just like it."
“Football 101” offered women the opportunity to ask questions concerning college football, and the NT coaching staff provided the insight and answers. Senior running back Patrick Cobbs, senior place kicker Nick Bazaldua and junior wide receiver Johnny Quinn opened the clinic with a question and answer session. The trio answered questions ranging from their background in sports to Quinn's vertical leap.
Assistant equipment manager Dick Miller gave a presentation on fitting the entire North Texas football team with helmets, pads and gear. Dickey then gave an overview of the game, while defensive coordinator Kenny Evans and offensive coordinator Ramon Flanigan broke down their specific areas into more X's and O's.
Hosted by Tory Dickey and Sandra Robinson, attendees included the Mayor of Denton Euline Brock, the assistant coaches' wives and numerous players' mothers.
