Sarah Fuller, Vanderbilt's female kicker, could make history Saturday against Missouri
Sarah Fuller, Vanderbilt’s female kicker and soccer star, could make history in the Vanderbilt Commodores vs. Missouri Tigers game.
Fuller can become the first woman to play in a Power 5 football game. The female soccer player has made the trip with the team to Columbia, and assuming she sees action Saturday, she will make history.
She shared the following Twitter post ahead of her much-anticipated Power 5 debut.

Fuller is the goalie on the Commodores women’s soccer team, and when Vanderbilt was running razor thin on special teams players due to COVID-19, Fuller got the call to help. She was ready to roll.
“I think it’s amazing and incredible,” Fuller told Vanderbilt’s website. “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 any way.
“It’s an honor they called on me to be able to do this and help them out.”
Vanderbilt won the SEC women’s soccer tournament title with a 3-1 victory over Arkansas Sunday.
