Sarah Fuller history: Where Paul Finebaum would rank the moment in SEC history
On Saturday afternoon, in an otherwise forgettable 41-0 loss for Vanderbilt at Mizzou, history was made.
K Sarah Fuller opened the second half with a squib kick, becoming the first woman ever to log a snap in a Power 5 football game.
On Sunday morning’s SportsCenter, SEC Network host Paul Finebaum weighed in on the historic moment and where it ranks in SEC history:
“Well, first of all, it’s something none of us thought we’d see,” he said. “But I would put it close to the very top in terms of not only historical moments, but inspirational moments. We’ve seen the pictures and the tweets from around the country of young girls and how they reacted to it.
“What’s particularly interesting, I think, is when we’ve had so many endless debates of whether we should have sports or not, that moment yesterday turned out to be one of the most memorable and unforgettable of this year. That, to me, is something I didn’t think we’d be saying in the year of COVID.”
It sounds like Fuller will still be in the mix to kick for Vanderbilt next week against Georgia. We’ll see if the Commodores can put her in position to attempt a field goal or an extra point.
