On Tuesday morning, the first NFL female coach, Jen Welter, gave a powerful presentation at the University of Florida. Her visit was part of the D.K. Stanley Lecture Series presented by the Frederick Family Endowment.
The title of Welter's speech was, "Being Limitless: Lessons from the First Woman Coach in the NFL." People packed Florida Gym to hear her story.
Welter talked about growing up with a passion for football and how she did not listen to the naysayers when she pursued her goals. UF's College of Health and Human Performance promoted her visit with a Facebook Live interview Monday afternoon.
Welter is best known for being the first NFL female coach when she joined the Arizona Cardinals as a training camp intern in 2015. She had previously broken through as the first woman to coach professional football when she joined the staff of Texas Revolution indoor football team.
In 2014, Welter became just the second female to play a non-kicker position in men's professional football with the Revolution. She has previously had a lengthy career in several pro and semi-pro women's leagues.
Welter holds a master's degree in sports psychology and a doctorate in psychology. She is the author of "Play Big: Lessons in Being Limitless from the First Woman to Coach in the NFL."
