Two Women Shake Hands On NFL Field and Make History
Jen Welter and Sarah Thomas made NFL history when they stepped onto the field of the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., on Saturday night.
The two women shook hands and took a moment to celebrate their accomplishments.
Welter made history in July when she was named the first female coach in NFL history. Thomas made history in April when she was named the first female NFL official referee.
Take a look at their historic debut in the NFL in the gallery above.
Welter shared her excitement on Twitter:
Yesterday was a huge day for all my sisters in football. Thank you for all the love and support. #footballfamily— Dr. Jen Welter (@jwelter47) August 17, 2015
