Meet Brianna Amat, the 17-year-old Pinckney Community High School
senior. Brianna is not only the reigning Homecoming queen, but also their
newest football hero. Brianna, much to her surprise, was crowned
Homecoming queen at half-time at last week’s game, proudly rocking both
her football uniform and the standard issue rhinestone encrusted tiara.
Following the parade and festivities, Brianna raced back to the game to
kick a third-quarter 31-yard field goal propelling Pinckney, the
ultimate underdog, to a 9-7 win over their opponent, Grand Blanc.
Brianna is one of just 28 girls who played high school football in
Michigan this year, a number which varies year to year.
A talented varsity soccer player, Brianna has been playing soccer since
she was three years old, and it was actually her soccer coach’s bragging
about her incredible foot that led her to her position as Pinckney's
kicker. Brianna is an inspiration on the field and off. Not to mention a
fab example of how a girl can do it all: win the game and walk away
with the crown.
