Vanderbilt's Sarah Fuller makes history as first woman to play in SEC football game

She was called in to help the football team this past week when COVID-19 quarantine issues hit the Vanderbilt Special Teams unit.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt's Sarah Fuller becomes the first female to participate in an SEC football game as well as a football game for a Power-5 school.

Fuller kicked off for the Commodores to open the 2nd half of their game at Missouri. 

Fuller is a senior goaltender on the school's women's soccer team that won the SEC Tournament less than a week ago.

She was called in to help the football team this past week when COVID-19 quarantine issues hit the Vanderbilt Special Teams unit.

"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,” Fuller said. 

“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 any way," Fuller went on to say.
