SEC Football

Nashville, Tenn. (WKRN)- Sarah Fuller is living her best life, first winning an SEC championship with the Vanderbilt women’s soccer team and now preparing to travel with the Vanderbilt football team for its game against Missouri.

She will be available as a kicker.

Fuller took to Twitter on Friday afternoon, saying “Let’s make history.”

Earlier in the week, Vanderbilt head football coach Derek Mason told ESPN 102.5 The Game that Sarah is an “option” at kicker. Later that afternoon, on an SEC coaches teleconference, he may have confirmed that Fuller was participating in football-related activities.

If Fuller plays Saturday, she would become be the first woman to log a snap in an NCAA Power Five conference game.

Fuller, posted to social media, she would be supporting a Nashville nonprofit, “Play Like a Girl”

On the back of her helmet, Fuller revealed, the words “Play Like a Girl” holds a message beyond the phrase.

The Nashville organization Play Like a Girl, was established to inspire girls through sports and provide the support and tools to propel women into male dominated fields, like STEM.

The Vanderbilt Commodores (0-7) will travel to Columbia, Missouri, to take on the Missouri Tigers (3-3) at noon Saturday, Nov. 28, on SEC Network.
