First Ever Female NFL Coach Wins Trailblazer Award Presented by Orbitz

8th Annual Petey Awards on November 10th

Compete Magazine and Orbitz will honor Dr. Jennifer Welter at the 2017 Compete Sports Diversity Awards, also known as the 8th Annual Petey Awards, in Kansas City, Missouri on November 10th.

“We are honored to present the Trailblazer Award to Dr. Welter and also excited that she will accept the award in-person,” said Compete CEO, Eric Carlyle. “We are delighted that Orbitz is joining us for the 8th year in a row and is participating in the celebration of Dr. Welter’s outstanding accomplishments.”

Welter is known as the first-ever female NFL coach, signing with the Arizona Cardinals in 2015. The same year she was also the first woman to coach in a men’s professional football league. Prior to these two coaching positions, she was signed as a running back on a men’s professional football team. In another “first,” Welter became the first woman to play a “contact” position in the male-dominated sport of football.

The 8th Annual Petey Awards is being held on Friday, November 10, 2017, at the Westin Crown Center. A VIP welcome reception begins at 6:00 p.m. with dinner seating at 7:00 p.m. Early-bird, general admission tickets are available for $125 and VIP tickets for $175. Additional information on this year’s event can be found online at sportsdiversityawards.com.
