Riverton High School now has an all girl football club. For a long time girls have wanted to know more about football and now, because of the girls football club, they can.

 

The club is for girls who want to learn about football. The girls will be learning about the basics of football, including throwing and catching the football as well as specific techniques to aid them in game play.

 

The club doesn’t have a set day to meet, but that will be figured out soon. They are also planning to go to some women’s football games to better show the skills and techniques in action.

 

McKenna Morgan, the club captain, is an amazing football player herself. She does not play for the Riverton school sanctioned team, but she does play for the out of school Riverton girls football team.

 

The club was also created to spread awareness for the out of school all girl tackle football league.

 

The club wants to find girls who want to play football, but didn’t know there was another team other than the boys football team at school.

 

McKenna Morgan, senior at Riverton High School, shared, “Football is a sport I love very much, and I thought I would share it with the school. The girls football club is giving girls an opportunity to maybe find something that they love or just gain a better knowledge about football. That, right there, is one of the main purposes of the club: to share our knowledge with other girls and to show them the key details to why football is such a great sport.”

 

Keora Anderson, also a senior at Riverton High School, shared, “I think it’s a great opportunity for the girls to feel included in a sport that they are not often included in.”
