When you think of a linebacker, you think of hard-hitting power and sheer muscle – like the force of 260-pound Ryan Kerrigan slamming into the opposing quarterback for the perfect sack. It is a position where great and explosive strength is necessary for success.
So, on July 27th, when the Arizona Cardinals announced that Jennifer Welter, a 5’2” and 130-pound female, would be the new linebacker coaching intern for the preseason, many jaws were left on the floor.
However, what people fail to realize is the intelligence also necessary to the linebacker position. It is this intellect that has ... Read More
