Women’s soccer goalie could make college football history at Vanderbilt

Women’s soccer goalie could make college football history at Vanderbilt

With several special teams players sidelined due to COVID-19, the Vanderbilt football team could make history and turn to a female soccer player to be their kicker.

The Vanderbilt Hustler reported that Sarah Fuller, the starting goalkeeper for the Commodores women’s soccer team, practiced with the football team as a kicker on Tuesday. While she did not take a snap, she walked through “with coaches and at least one specialist on the sidelines” in full pads and uniform.

During a spot on 102.5 The Game in Nashville Wednesday, Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason confirmed that Fuller “is an option for us.”

If Fuller, a senior from Wylie, Texas, plays against Missouri Saturday, it is believed she would be the first woman to participate in a Power 5 football game.

The 0-7 Commodores have had trouble in the kicking game after graduate transfer Oren Milstein opted out over the summer. The only player to attempt field goals this season, Pierson Cooke, is 3-for-7.
