Times have surely changed in life and we are watching the headlines at Git Right Sports Performance & Fitness. We have seen many figures in athletics complete incredible tasks in the Sochi Olympics and in major professional sports across the country. We have seen barriers being broken down and a new respect gained by people for going after their dreams and goals. Since the game of football began, it has been a male dominated sport, with women in the role of cheerleaders or part of the dance team. Recently more women decided to play this high impact sport and they have created a wave in football. The women that played this sport usually were given positions that required less physical contact such as a kicker or punter in the special teams squad. The women were put there to make sure that they were not injured in the other positions. Well in a recent post titled: Running Back Jennifer Welter Makes History By Playing In Pro Football Game written by The Post Staff, she has made a statement in the world of football.

The Post Game Staff reported that football history was made rather quietly over the weekend in Texas. During an Indoor Football League game between the Texas Revolution and the North Texas Crunch, 36-year-old Jennifer Welter got three carries, making her the first woman to play a non-kicking position in a pro football league.

Welter, who has starred at linebacker for a decade for the Dallas Diamonds of the Women’s Football Alliance, got her first carry midway through the third quarter. She took a handoff from two yards out of the end zone and scampered around the left tackle. But the 5-foot-2, 130 pound Welter was met by 6-4, 245-pound defensive lineman Cedric Hearvey for a one-yard loss.
Somehow, Welter was unfazed by the hit.

“I said, ‘Is that all you got?'” Welter asked Hearvey. “I didn’t want them to think I was intimidated.”
