HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University Head Football Coach Ron Roberts will tackle Lion
football basics with female fans at the first-ever "High Heel Huddle" for female fans
during the Hammond Chamber's Business & Community EXPO on Wednesday, April 17.
During the 30-minute session, players and coaches will explain the Southeastern football philosophy, some football terminology, as well as provide an overview of the upcoming season.
Admission is free to both the High Heel Huddle and the EXPO. The huddle will start at 6:30 p.m. at the EXPO in the Southeastern University Center. Roberts will provide a female-friendly tutorial on the Lions' preferred alignments and strategies on both sides of the ball. Greg Stevens, offensive coordinator, will discuss the finer points of the Lions' offense, while Pete Golding, defensive coordinator, and members of the defensive staff will talk about schemes and strategies.
Along with demonstrations of common referee hand signals and what they mean, Roberts and his coaching staff will also explain some of the game's more easily misunderstood rules.
Attendees will be treated to special Lion fan giveaways and have the first opportunity to have their 2013 Lions Football posters signed by players.
