Britball Pioneer Phoebe Schecter Headed to the NFL!

Per Pro Football Talk, GB Lions Captain and Birmingham Lions and Staffordshire Surge star, Phoebe Schecter, has been selected to work with the Buffalo Bills as a coaching intern this summer!

The Bills made history by hiring the first female coaching assistant to their staff with the hiring of Kathryn Smith as a special teams quality control coach, and this year Phoebe will, while not a full-time staffer, be repping both female ballers and the Britball Nation at the Bills training camps!

Per PFT:

“They won’t have a woman on their full-time staff this year, but they will have one working with the team during training camp. The team announced Wednesday that Phoebe Schecter will be a coaching intern this summer.

Schecter has played and coached in Great Britain and Alex Marvez of Sporting News reports that she made a connection with Bills owner Kim Pegula at a league-sponsored Women’s Careers in Football Forum earlier this year. Schecter joins Collette Smith of the Jets as female coaching interns this summer.”

Phoebe joined #TeamDC to work on 2017’s highly successful coverage of the Women’s Sapphire Series this summer, so we really proud and pleased to see the HUGE amount of commitment and effort she puts into the sport being rewarded with this well-deserved opportunity!
