Corey and Steve invite you to tune in as they tackle some of the week's big topics in football and in life. This week we will talk about the latest Football headlines from the NFL and NCAA including our updated BCS bowl and NFL playoff predictions. At about 20 minutes into the show, we are honored to have Dr. Jen Welter as our guest on the show to talk about women in sports. Dr. Jen has a PhD in Sports Psychology, she stands 5’2”, and plays linebacker for the Dallas Diamonds – a women’s professional football team.  Jen found her love for full-contact sports at Boston College, playing rugby all four years.   Despite her success, she was too small to continue, and her dream to represent the USA in Rugby ended there. Shortly aftwards, Jen was asked to tryout for the Mass Mutiny, a women’s football team. In her second season, Jen was named an All-American. After her second season, Jen relocated to Dallas, TX to play with the Dallas Dragons. Following that season, Welter left the Dragons and joined the Dallas Diamonds where she recently completed her 10th season.  She has been named an All-American 8 times, and on October 21st, Jen was among the players honored at the White House by the Council on Women and Girls. Dr. Welter’s success in both football and education has been supported by her 17 year fitness career, which began in high school, when she first became certified to teach aerobics.  Football, fitness, and psychology are interwoven in Dr. Welter’s endeavors in speaking, writing, consulting, and mentorship.  You can find more about her amazing story at: http://www.jenwelter.com  Please don’t miss what will be a fascinating show!
