On this National Women & Girls in Sports Day, Russell Wilson needs your help.
The Seattle Seahawks veteran quarterback has had many, many years on the gridiron. And now, he wants that same opportunity for women. An opportunity to create a new variety level sport called Women’s Flag.
“1 million more boys than girls get to play sports in high school.
Because they have football.”
As of Tuesday night, the three states with the highest votes so far are Massachusetts, Texas and California. The last two are not surprising since Texas and California (along with Florida) are hot spots in the high school and youth football scene. Massachusetts is interesting!
Cast your vote for your state here.
This is the time to begin the necessary steps to making Women’s Flag into a reality.
We are seeing more and more women coaches getting hired and promoted in the NFL. This upcoming Super Bowl between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs will feature two women on the Bucs coaching staff: Full-year coaching intern Jennifer King and assistant defensive line coach Lori Locust.
And we couldn’t possibly forget Vanderbilt kicker Sarah Fuller, who became the first female to score in a Power-5 college football game this past 2020 season.
So join Wilson and help bring Women’s Flag to your state!
