Jennifer King Plays to Win
Jennifer King has been passionate about sports since her schoolyard days, when she knew she had an edge over all the guys around her. And she’s turned that passion into a career as the first Black woman to be a full-time coach in the National Football League. As a running backs coach for the Washington Football Team, Jennifer works long hours to keep her players prepared and focused on whatever comes next. But in order to get to the NFL, she had to make some tough choices and sacrifices along the way. On this week’s episode, host Kimberly Drew talks with Jennifer about her journey to the NFL, how the women in the league support each other, and her surprise connection to NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson.
