Sarah Fuller just made *major* sports history
Sarah Fuller is now the first woman to play in one of college football’s Power 5 conferences!
Originally the goalkeeper for Vanderbilt University's Women's Soccer team, Sarah Fuller subbed in as a kicker for the Vanderbilt football team after a member was in contact with someone who tested positive for the coronavirus. She got the call from her soccer coach, who asked her if she could sub in, and the rest was history (or should we say HER-story)!
Fuller also wants to make sure other girls have the chance to as well. During Saturday's game, she wore #PlayLikeAGirl on her helmet, supporting the organization that helps girls participate in sports and STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math).
Tomorrow I will be wearing “Play Like a Girl” on the back of my helmet. @iplaylikeagirl is nonprofit that encourages girls to play sports and get exposure to STEM opportunities. Check them out! #playlikeagirl https://t.co/2inXh5PM2V pic.twitter.com/W7lF9dXkUR— Sarah Fuller (@SarahFuller_27) November 27, 2020
"The fact that I can represent all the girls out there that have wanted to do this or thought about playing football or any sport really, and it encourages them to be able to step out and do something big like this—it's awesome," she said.
Congratulations Sarah! We're so excited to see what you do next!
