There is big news out of our nation’s capital tonight: CNN reports that “A high school in Washington, D.C., is set to name a former women's professional football player as its head varsity football coach Friday, a move that a national women's sports advocacy group calls historic.”

The woman’s name is Natalie Randolph.

She’s a 29-year-old science teacher at Coolidge High.

“Randolph, who was a wide receiver for the D.C. Divas women's pro football team and a standout sprinter and hurdler at the University of Virginia, has previous experience coaching boys, having been an assistant football coach for Washington's H.D. Woodson High School in 2006 and 2007,” CNN writes.

Pretty cool stuff.
