A record-breaking 320 women took to the field today for Texas Tech’s annual women’s football clinic for a casual and festive look into Tech football.
After a meal and some drinks, the women sat down for a question and answer session with some of the players and learned to punt, pass and kick from head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
“He's just dreamy in the first place,” said Melissa Jiussani. “He's been here talking and were just drooling over him.”
When asked how Kingsburry felt about the swarm of women drooling over him he said, “It's pretty intense. It beats having dudes out here though that’s what I tell everybody but it’s all good.”
Not only does he enjoy teaching the women how to throw a football, but he said the best part about the clinic is raising money for one of their own, Jennie Bailey, who was diagnosed with brain cancer back in March.
Bailey is the administrative assistant for recruiting at Tech, and was shocked when she heard the money would go toward her fund.
“When they called to tell me they were going to take the proceeds from this and put it to my medical fund it was just overwhelming and touched my heart so much that they would pick me to do that,” said Bailey.
The Tech football team was able to raise $16,000 for Bailey's fund.
