The story about how a female broke down the doors of the New York Jets and created her own path. The Connie Carberg story is a unique tale.
2017 would like to suggest that a new era is present in the world—one without racism, sexism or any other barriers that exist. A Utopian society that has reached the perfect equilibrium. Obviously, with the transgressions of Charlottesville, we know that not to be true.
But it’s not all bad. Throughout their history, the New York Jets have been visionaries. It started back in the mid to late 1970’s with Connie Carberg.
Carberg served in a scouting role with the Jets from 1976-80. She kicked down a door that has long been shut to the female populace.
Her trials and tribulations are retold in her recently published book, “X’s and O’s Don’t Mean I Love You.”
I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Connie over the last several years. She’s an absolute fountain of knowledge and she’s soaked up so much throughout her experienced journey over the last several decades.
If her new book is half as interesting as her life, you’ll be getting a read for the ages. It’s not only for Jets fans — it’s for females aspiring to make the leap into the business. It’s for football consumers who enjoy the history of the game and the background involved.
That was not the first time the Jets would utilize their visionary mindset. In an exclusive interview this week on The Jets Zone, we’ll be talking with Lee Brandon, who claims to be the first female coach in NFL History — once again, thanks to the Jets visionary ways.
Look forward to that conversation on Sports War Radio later this week.
