This Woman Became The Second Female To Ever Score In College Football


It looked uncertain for a second, but it got the job done.

Over the weekend, Kent State University kicker April Goss became just the second woman in college football history to score in a game when she kicked an extra point.

It was the first time a female scored in a college game since Katie Hnida accomplished the same feat in 2003 for the University of New Mexico.

That fact and the significance of the moment was not lost on Goss' teammates, who immediately carried her off the field.

Although Goss, a fourth-year player on the team, expressed her disappointment in the manner of her kick, she still took pride in the great moment.

She told the AP,

It definitely was.
