Polian’s ‘Football 101’ caters to female fans
July 2, 2013
University of Nevada head football coach Brian Polian and his wife, Laura, will host the inaugural “Football 101” event for women Aug. 2 at 5 p.m. at Mackay Stadium. Joining the Polians will be additional Wolf Pack football coaches and their wives.
“Laura and I are thrilled to host the Football 101 event for women,” Brian Polian said. “It gives us a great opportunity to connect with our female Wolf Pack football fan base and provides us a way to offer support to a great organization in Moms on the Run. We are looking forward to Aug. 2 and have no doubt that this event will be a lot of fun for all involved.”
Moms on the Run is a Reno-based nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance to women with breast cancer.
Admission to the event is $75 per person, or a table of 10 can be purchased for $650. Proceeds from the event will benefit Nevada football and Moms on the Run. Guests will learn about each player position, football vocabulary and experience hands-on game-day preparation that a Wolf Pack football student-athlete receives.
“I am really excited about hosting the event with Brian,” Laura Polian said. “I think this will be a great event for the women in our community. Not only can they have a great girls’ night out and learn some more about football, but they can do it while supporting two great causes in our community. I am looking forward to continue to add to my football IQ while having a fun evening out with some girlfriends.”
The event will be broken into four quarters and a halftime period. The first quarter (player check-in), second quarter (silent auction and hosted cocktails), halftime (dinner provided by Pinocchio’s), third quarter (pregame preparation) and fourth quarter (on-field playing time).
Participants are asked to dress in their favorite Wolf Pack attire and wear comfortable athletic shoes. Complimentary parking is available in the West Stadium parking garage.
