Vanderbilt’s Fuller first woman to score in Power 5 football game
Vanderbilt kicker Sarah Fuller became the first female to score in a Power 5 football game when she made an extra point in the first quarter of Saturday’s game against Tennessee in Southeastern Conference action in Nashville.
Fuller’s kick followed Ken Seals’ 18-yard touchdown pass to Cam Johnson with 1:50 left in the first quarter, tying the game 7-7.
Last month, Fuller became the first woman to play in a Power 5 football game when her second-half squib kickoff went 30 yards during a 41-0 loss at Missouri. She was named SEC special teams co-player of the week for her performance.
Fuller became the third woman to play in a Division I college football game, following in the path of kickers Katie Hnida (New Mexico, 2003) and April Goss (Kent State, 2015).
Fuller, a senior from Wylie, Texas, started nine of 12 games at goalkeeper for Vanderbilt’s SEC championship women’s soccer team this fall before being added to the football roster.
