“Play Big: Lessons in Being Limitless from the First Woman to Coach in the NFL” by Dr. Jen Welter with Stephanie Krikorian

“Play Big: Lessons in Being Limitless from the First Woman to Coach in the NFL” by Dr. Jen Welter with Stephanie Krikorian c.2017, Seal Press $26.00 / $34.00 Canada 266 pages That was the lousiest call, ever. Obviously, the ref wasn’t paying attention. He was looking the other way, he dropped the flag by accident, he must be wearing a blindfold. The ref was wrong, but in the new book “Play Big” by Dr. Jen Welter (with Stephanie Krikorian), the game is right. At first, it was tennis. When little Jen Welter’s mother suggested that her daughters pick just one after-school activity, Welter chose tennis and became obsessed with it. She practiced non-stop and ultimately beat players much older than she, but a coach’s dismissive words caused her to give up the game. Rugby stole her heart in college and that led to a try-out for the Massachusetts Mutiny, a women’s pro football team.

It wasn’t going to make her rich, though: she was paid a dollar a game her first season, though the situation got better after she gained a championship ring for the “women’s football Super Bowl” and she moved to Dallas to play with the Diamonds. Later, she played in the IFAF Women’s World Championship. She’d...

McNary honors senior wrestlers

By DEREK WILEY Of the Keizertimes McNary rolled on Thursday, Jan. 18, defeating McKay 51-12 and West Salem 55-15. But the Celtics couldn’t carry that momentum over to senior night, falling to North Salem 42-30 on Friday, Jan. 19. “We wrestled way better yesterday than we did tonight and I’m not talking effort,” McNary head coach Jason Ebbs said. “I’m talking about technique. There’s certain mistakes that we made tonight that we simply did not make last night and they were fatal mistakes.” Senior Brayden Ebbs (170) opened Friday’s home dual, his final at McNary, with a pin in...
