Former Cardinals coach Jennifer Welter recently spoke on CBS Sports Radio and stated that she believes that one day, women will play in the NFL alongside men. Welter historically was the first female to coach in the NFL, and proved that women are able to coach men in this very sport. She insists that these days, there are plenty of girls leagues and that they are getting started at a younger and younger age, which means that they do not have to catch up to their male counterparts as much. With this knowledge, the coach is sure that someday females will pave their way to the fields of the professional leagues.
The Vero Beach, Florida native is a former player of several professional women’s football teams such as the Dallas Diamonds and the Dallas Dragons, so she has had plenty of experience when it comes to the football industry. In addition to that, she was a member of Team USA at the Federation of American Football’s Women’s World Champion Games during the 2010 and 2013 events and even brought home the gold medals. In February of this year she was given the job as the linebackers and special teams coach for the Texas Revolution, a men’s professional indoor football team. She was also asked to be a preseason and training coach for the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals this summer and has proven that her knowledge and skills were taken seriously during her time in Phoenix.
Welter recently spoke to CBS Sports Radio about her thoughts on women playing in the NFL, and it was clearly stated that she believes that one day, females will be on the field. The former Cardinals intern helped blur the gender lines herself a little bit by becoming the first female coach with a professional team, so who know’s what will come next.
