I know you have all been dying to see these pics! I'll spare you the scandalous ones and just put the ones you are interested in. (Warning -- it's all photos so I'm sorry if you have slow Internets.) I haven't cropped or edited these at all, so excuse the imperfections.
The clinic started with dinner & a fashion show with clothing from local department stores modeled by Tech students & local celebrities. After that was a highlight reel from last season & introduction of coaching staff, followed by a fashion show of a different kind. Then the participants went to the locker room, so we could run out on the field just like the players. From there, a tour of the training facility, practice in offensive & defensive drills, and a tour of the press box.
Everyone who has ever gone has had a really great time. I'm sorry for you boys that can't go! The players and coaches are awesome and are very accessible and really enthusiastic about yelling, "Hustle, Ladies!" Highly encourage women with an interest in football to attend.
Hope you enjoy the pics! Shout if you have questions about something -- I posted these pretty quickly! KO
Yes, the Lead Pirate was a model at the fashion show, but just modeling UA gear. No cross-dressing here, sorry!

I'll spare you the gory details, but the highlight of football clinic is getting to "help" the players get dressed. Here is the before (and I promise their Under Armors left little to the imagination!)
Some lucky ladies helping with the uniforms.
Ladies in the locker room.
Antonio Huffman dressed up like a pirate.
Inside the football training facility.
Bennie Wylie's infamous sand pit. Yes, we ran through it. Yes, it was tiring.
Strength & Conditioning Center. I believe this was renamed after EJ Holub last season -- don't remember this being there at last year's football clinic.
Batch and Potts putting some ladies through the ropes.
Coach Ruff and Coach Sadler (I think? I'm doing this from memory. Correct me if I'm wrong!)
Coach Mitchell & Jamar Wall showing us girls how it's done.
Sam Fehoko. No I didn't ask about his brother, but I thought about it.
Coach Mainord and crew.
Brian Duncan was an awesome tour guide. Here he's showing us his "Toot & Scoot" dance.
