BLOOMINGBURG December 31, 2002 While studying trial techniques at Hofstra Law School this summer, local attorney and loyal New York Jets fan Judith Young had the opportunity to meet a few of the Jets players.
The Jets, who clinched a playoff berth on Sunday afternoon and are now one of 12 NFL teams with a legitimate chance of playing in next months Super Bowl, were holding their training camp at the same time Young was increasing her knowledge of the law.
Young and her friend Patricia Latimer of Rock Hill attended the New York Jets 2002 Training Camp for Women at the Meadowlands. While at the training camp, the two ladies enhanced their knowledge of the game of football thanks to current and former players.
At the camp, quarterback Chad Pennington, who completed 17 of 24 passes for 196 yards in the Jets 42-17 pummeling of the Green Bay Packers on Sunday afternoon, gave both Latimer and Young advice on throwing the pigskin.
He noted the key to a good throw is that the index finger should be the last one to leave the ball.
Other Jets players Anthony Becht, Dave Herman, Randy Beverly and Ken Schroy taught Latimer and Young how to, respectively, run away from the ball and catch it, perform proper stretching exercises, kick a ball and run around obstacles.
