  • NFL Sees Milestone In The Pre-Season

    08.18.2015 / Blog Posts Local Lifestyle

    This year has marked several milestones for the NFL. In early April, Sarah Thomas became the NFL’s first full-time female employee as a referee. Just a few months later, Dr. Jen Welter made a splash on the scene after she was hired by the Cardinals to work with their linebackers.

    And on Saturday, August 15, the two milestones united as the Cardinals vs. Chiefs pre-season game saw the first female coach and first female ref on the same field.

    While both trailblazers have had their struggles on the road to success, they are immensely supported by their peers.

    It’s been four years since the United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) suffered a devastating loss to Japan in the FIFA Women’s World Cup Championship. It was a hard fought game and if it wasn't for women's soccer legend and 4x USWNT player, Abby Wambach, the game would've never existed. Wambach was able to notch a header in the goal during overtime in the 2011 World Cup Semifinal against Brazil. To this day it still remains one of the greatest moments in Women's World Cup history.
