Phoebe Schechter talks on the Growth of the Game

Our friend John Hill of Pulling the Flag chatted with pioneer of the British game, Phoebe Schecter, ahead of her fourth straight Sapphire Series title with the Birmingham Lions.

This summer Phoebe’s headed to the Buffalo Bills as a coaching intern through their camps – and we’re not sure we can think of a better ambassador for the Britball Nation!
