Today Sarah Fuller became the first female to play in a Power 5 game as the Vanderbilt Commodores suited up against the Missouri Tigers.
Power 5 refers to the 5 athletic conferences (SEC, ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12), the highest level of college football in the United States.
Sarah kicked off to Missouri to start the 2nd half of the game.
That was her only kick in the game, but it was historic for little girls who aspire to play college football worldwide.
Sarah is also on the Vanderbilt women’s soccer team, and they just won the SEC Championship last week after beating Arkansas, 3-1.
Sarah compared the pressure of winning the soccer Championship to the pressure of kicking in her first college football game.
Honestly, I was just really calm. The SEC championship was more stressful if I’m going to be honest.
Unfortunately Vanderbilt did not win the game today, they were blown out 41-0.
Nonetheless, that didn’t dim Sarah Fuller’s shining moment.
It is unknown if Sarah will play in Vanderbilt’s next game against the Georgia Bulldogs, but the Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason made it clear that he was leaving the decision up to Sarah.
That’s really of her choosing. If she wants to kicks and she’s available we’d love to have her.
Shout out to Sarah Fuller for being an awesome athlete and a great role model.
