Vanderbilt kicker Sarah Fuller made history again Saturday when she kicked an extra point in the first half of the Commodores’ game against Tennessee, making her the first woman to score points in a Power Five college football game. Fuller, a starting goalkeeper on the Commodores’ SEC championship women’s soccer team, joined the football program late last month amid COVID-19 issues and became the first woman to play in a Power Five game by kicking the ball off on Nov. 28 against Missouri.

“I just want to tell all the girls out there that you can do anything you set your mind to. You really can. If you have that mentality all the way through, you can do big things,” Fuller said after the first game she played against Mizzou.

“I think it’s amazing and incredible,” Fuller said two weeks ago when it was determined she would dress and travel with Vanderbilt. “But I’m also trying to separate that because I know this is a job I need to do and I want to help the team out and I want to do the best that I can. Placing that historical aspect aside just helps me focus in on what I need to do. I don’t want to let them down in anyway. It’s an honor they called on me to be able to do this and help them out.”
