Vanderbilt University senior student-athlete Sarah Fuller was selected as the Southeastern Conference Special Teams Player of the Week.

Fuller made history Saturday, November 28, becoming the first woman to officially take the field during a football game in a Power 5 Conference. Fuller served as the Commodores’ primary kicker during the team’s contest at the University of Missouri.

Making history: Sarah Fuller punctuates inspiring month of women in sports

She took the opening kick-off of the second half against the Tigers, as her perfectly-executed kick sailed 30 yards and was downed at the Tigers 35-yard line.

Fuller joined the likes of New Mexico’s Katie Hnida and Kent State’s April Goss as the only females to appear in a Football Bowl Subdivision contest.
