Sarah Fuller Becomes First Woman Ever To Play In Power 5 College Football Game

History was made during Saturday’s Vanderbilt University vs University of Missouri’s College.

Sarah Fuller walked onto the field and kicked off the football for the Commodores, marking the first time a woman has ever played in a power five conference college football game.

“I think it’s amazing and incredible,” Fuller said in an interview leading up to the game. “But I’m also trying to separate that because I know this is a job I need to do and I want to help the team out and I want to do the best that I can.” 

Fuller was brought into action due to the loss of players out because of COVID-19. Fuller is a goalkeeper on the Vanderbuilt women’s soccer team, making the transition to kicker relatively natural.
