Female Kicker’s Historic Season Ends with Cancellation

Andy Berg

The cancellation of a college football game over COVID-19 concerns will be the end of the line for the first woman to both appear and score in a Power Five football game.

Sarah Fuller was brought on as the kicker for Vanderbilt just before Thanksgiving, but now will see her short season end as the Commodores’ upcoming game against Georgia has been cancelled. 

Fuller appeared in two games, executing a squib kick against Missouri and then kicking two extra points against Tennessee this past Saturday.

Fuller plans to return to Vanderbilt women’s soccer as the team’s starting goalie. After that, she will transfer to North Texas, where she plans on playing two more years of soccer.

“We’ve watched with admiration and great respect how Sarah has handled herself in making history at Vanderbilt,” North Texas athletic director Wren Baker told Yahoo Sports. “We look forward to welcoming her to the Mean Green family and helping her extend her platform. I know she’s a role model for lots of people in the country, particularly young female athletes.”
