Fulton, Miss. (WTVA)-Ben Jones has over 30 years of coaching under his belt and when asked to do a program for women to better understand football for years he declined, but finally he said yes after realizing one thing.
"I thought back about my mother, my own mother," says Jones. "She never came to see me play or coach a game until the final year of her life. In 1973 she came to a homecoming game in Itawamba. After that I thought about dedicating things to my mother, and that is one of the reasons I am doing this."
He says it's fun for him to help women understand the game of football for one simple reason.
"To every champion there is a champion mom and all those moms support the athlete and that is important," says Jones.
Not knowing what women would ask about he turned to his daughters to get an idea.
"She said I want to know why everyone is still, but one guy is running in motion," says Jones. "That is a good question because you can only have one guy in motion on offense, and I will explain that to the people. The other daughter said she wanted to know the main four signals the officials give and I have that planned."
Coach Jones and referee Bob Knight will go over signals, rule books, and anything else the ladies want to know.
For anyone who isn't able to make it, but still doesn't have a clue when to cheer or what to look for on the football field Jones says it's really simple to figure out.
"Look up there at the scoreboard and see what the score is," Jones says. "If the score is higher for the home team that means they are winning. If the score is lower for the home team they are losing."
