Women attend "Football 101" Clinic

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Southern Miss and Forrest General Hospital teamed up to host a pre-season gridiron event just for the ladies tonight. It was the 2nd annual, "Football 101" at The Rock on the Southern Miss campus. 

Women were invited to eat dinner, meet the Golden Eagles coaching staff and players and ask questions about the game.

It was all being done to encourage more women to get involved with the sport.
