Football for moms

Posted

Tomorrow night (Thursday), mothers, coaches wives and female fans of Owensville Dutchmen football will be treated to a fun and informational event put on by head coach Nathan Cabot and his coaching staff.

If one has wondered what a certain signal by a referee indicates, those will be answered.

One example is when an official puts his hand on his head, that is a penalty for an ineligible man downfield.

Unless an offensive lineman reports as eligible to the officials, they have to stay behind the line of scrimmage on a pass play or else the offensive team will be assessed a penalty for that.

A chalk talk session will also be included going over various offensive plays and formations along with defensive plays and formations.

Coaches will also give a tour of Dutchmen Field and the team locker room inside Owensville High School.

Attendees will also get to participate in walk-through drills on Dutchmen Field itself.

There will also be plenty of time throughout the evening for questions and answers.

First-year Gasconade County R-2 Activities Director Matt Johnson outlined four reasons for putting this event together.

He wanted a chance to engage with the community and felt this would be one way to do so.

Johnson thought this would also be a chance to educate anyone on the basics of the game of football so they could share it with their son, brother, grandchildren, etc.

“We call it football for moms because our moms were never given the opportunity to learn the game and nobody supports our team like our moms,” Johnson said.

They also want to share what the players do on a day-to-day basis along with having a fun night for the community.
