The First Female NFL Scout

Connie Nicholas Carberg was the NFL’s first female scout and the first woman to make a pick in the NFL draft (for the New York Jets). She joins Carol to share her amazing story of letting her passion for football and willingness to ask for help guide her into a place in the Jets’ scouting department, where her achievements included scouting All-Pro defensive end Mark Gastineau. Connie shares a unique take on breaking barriers and being successful with a positive attitude, a life-long love of football and the Jets, and even weighs in on the potential future of NCAA athletes being able to profit off their names and likenesses.

You can also see a fantastic NFL Films piece on Connie called “Forever a Jet” on YouTube.

You can connect with Connie on Twitter and visit her website. You can read the book about her, “X’s and O’s Don’t Mean I Love You” here.
