Hey everyone this is Sam bringing you some great news about college football. Senior Sarah Fuller who plays for the Vanderbilt Commodores boarded the football plane from Nashville to Columbia, Missouri on Friday afternoon according to Vanderbilt spokesperson Alan George confirmed. Why is this great news, Sam? So what? Some girl boarded the football plane. Oh well. No, no, no, Sarah Fuller would become the first woman to play in an SEC football game if she gets to take the field against Missouri.
College Football: Vandy vs Missouri
Well, Vandy is 0-7 this year and they take on the Missouri Tigers (3-3) at 11:00am on SEC Network. She is a Vanderbilt women’s soccer player that was asked to join the football team. There will be a very limited number of specialists available for the game because of Covid-19 contact tracing that has hit the Vanderbilt team.
Who is Sarah Fuller?
Sarah Fuller is a 6-2 senior soccer player that is 21 years old. She is from Wylie, Texas. Fuller will be wearing jersey number 32 for the football game. She will be leaving to attend North Texas next year. Fuller said in a tweet at the time, “I am very excited to head to North Texas next fall to get my Master’s in Hospital Administration and continue my soccer career with an incredible program!”
According to the Tennessean, “Sarah Fuller started nine of the 12 games as the starting goalkeeper Vanderbilt women’s soccer played during the fall 2020 season. She recorded shutouts in three of those games, and the team went 7-2 with her in the net. She helped Vandy women’s soccer capture the 2020 Southeastern Conference Tournament title.”
Sarah Fuller was planning to travel to her home in Wylie, Texas, for the holiday break until soccer associate head coach Ken Masuhr called her with an unexpected set of questions. “Have you ever kicked a football before? Would you want to be a kicker on the football team? Would you be able to stay here this weekend and be a kicker for the football team?Fuller answered yes to each question and soon suited up at college football practice.”
Wishing Her Well and Play Like A Girl
The Tennessee Titans have tweeted their best wishes to her and the team.
She’ll also have the phrase “Play Like A Girl” on her helmet. Fuller explained on Twitter that Play Like A Girl is “a nonprofit that encourages girls to play sports and get exposure to STEM opportunities.”
Sarah Fuller, I personally and the staff of Sports Obsessive congratulate you on just being a member of the Vanderbilt Commodores and we wish you the best of luck on Saturday’s game. We’ll be rooting for you to get a chance to show your skill, make college football history and most of all…to make it! Good luck!
