Moms in Black hosted their first information session for mothers of  football players Friday evening at Southridge High School in Huntingburg. Wives of Southridge coaches — Stephanie Buening, Tracey Michel, Amy Maxey, Jennifer Murphy and Beth Winkler — organized the group to provide support and information about youth and high school football. Seniors on this year’s SHS squad explained safety, positions and rules of the game through a variety of stations. Deb Brunsman of Huntingburg, right, tried on shoulder pads while senior Justin Lammers had a helmet ready for her to try on as well. MIB is for mothers of football players of all ages in the Southwest Dubois school district. The high school football season begins with scrimmages this Friday and opening games Friday, Aug. 18.

Raider seniors demonstrated different offensive plays to mothers gathered and answered questions about the game.
