The First Down Divas Women's Football Clinic is an opportunity for women to learn and further understand the game of football. New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton and Saints players Darren Sproles and Lance Moore are the featured speakers, along with other surprise guests. Along with the Football 101 instruction from Green Wave coaching staff and Saints standouts, there will also be a live auction, door prizes, food and drinks and all proceeds will benefit the Devon Walker Fund, specifically Devon's Den.

Tulane senior football player Devon Walker was injured in the second season of the 2012 campaign and will need ongoing medical care. With the generous support of all the participants in the First Down Divas Football Clinic, the goal is to help offset some of Devon's medical/living expenses.

Devon's Den is the addition of a bathroom and bedroom to the Walker house in Destrehan. The addition will include the technology necessary for Devon's health and safety, as well as, enable him to continue his course work at Tulane.
