Vanderbilt Kicker Sarah Fuller Makes History as the First Woman to appear in a Power 5 Football Game

Vanderbilt Kicker Sarah Fuller Makes History as the First Woman to participate in a Power 5 Football Game.

Vanderbilt kicker Sarah Fuller made history on Saturday when she kicked off at the start of the second half against Missouri, making her the first woman to play a snap in a Power Five college football game. Fuller, a starting goalkeeper on the Commodores’ SEC championship women’s soccer team, joined the football program this week after Vanderbilt lost multiple specialists due to COVID-19 issues.

Fuller’s squib kick was recovered by Missouri at its own 35-yard line.

“I just want to tell all the girls out there that you can do anything you set your mind to. You really can. If you have that mentality all the way through, you can do big things,” Fuller said after the game, a 41-0 loss for the Commodores.  To read more go to the link below:
