University of Texas hosts “Sweatin with Strong” Women’s clinic

Hundreds of female fans gathered at Darrel K. Royal stadium on Saturday to work out with Charlie Strong and the University of Texas football team.

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Saturday marked the second day of the “Sweating With Strong” women’s clinic at the University of Texas. And the name fit-It was hot on the turf and the coaching staff and players really made the women work.

This year's "Sweatin With Strong" had an 80's theme.

The women got to take a tour of the football facility guided by coaches and staff. They also got the chance to know the team on the field, and really learn all that goes into the game of football.

“You don’t realize there’s as much that goes in to it as there is. It’s exactly, alright, how back is your foot, how far over are your feet, are you leaning backwards, are you leaning forward? It’s a lot of technical stuff. Most schools don’t have anything like this, but here you get to come out, interact with coaches, go behind the scenes, things that most people don’t get to do. The fact that we’re women allows us to do that, it’s a great opportunity,” said Tiffany Lewis, one of the participants at camp on Saturday.

Last year the University of Texas held the camp, that time called “Strong Women Love Football”.

A camp with another name most likely involving Strong’s name is expected for next summer.
