Ladies Football Forum Focuses on Family Atmosphere

Football season is coming quickly.

The Ladies Football Forum was a family affair Saturday.
One attendee, Sharon Hays, photographer, said the event was inspiring and informative. “I met great ladies,” she said. “Beth Peterson has been coming to the forum for the last 11 years. Her daughter Bethany McBride has been coming with Beth he past 9 years and they’ve been bringing Emmie-Kathryn McBride for the past 2 years.”
She added that the wives of the Rebel coaches offered great information about the ins and outs of what is going on around the clock, 24 hours a day 365 days a year, with the Rebel football team.
The coaching staff emphasized that Rebel football is more than just about winning games. They focus on family values,  helping boys become men and earning degrees and a chance for a successful life after football.
From a coaching perspective, there is little time off. The coaches, as well as their wives, learned Hays, are committed to the Ole Miss football family. Coaching families interact with the players frequently. It is all part of a family relationship.
Here are some images of Sharon Hays experience at the forum.

The ladies in attendance learned what it means to be a Rebel football coach — and a coach’s wife.

Coaches provide the information that can make watching the game even more enjoyable.
