First Down Divas: Saints Teach Women's Football


When it comes to WhoDats, New Orleanians know that women are just as emphatic about their team as the men. Now, ladies have a chance to get some personalized instruction straight from the Saints. Next week, Tulane coach Curtis Johnson is hosting the First Down Divas Women's Football Clinic in Harvey, and the Saints will be offering their own thoughts.

 

The inaugural edition of the clinic, which is set to take place on Tuesday, June 11, from 6-9 p.m. at the Crystal Palace in Harvey. Black and Gold Head Coach Sean Payton, running back Darren Sproles and Wide Receiver Lance Moore will be on hand for instruction, as well as staff from the Tulane football program.

 

Along with learning about the finer points of the gridiron, pigskin-obsessed ladies can also help out injured Tulane defender Devon Walker through a live auction.

 

Walker, who suffered a severe spinal injury on the field in 2012, is still in recovery. Now, his family and supporters looking to add a bathroom and bedroom to his home in Destrehan through the Devon's Den Fund. The addition will include the technology necessary for Devon's health and safety, as well as, enable him to continue his course work at Tulane.

 

Tickets for the event are available in three support levels of 1st String Bling ($100), All-American Diva ($1,200) and Heisman ($2,500). To find out more about the packages, check out the registration form.
