It’s still rare to find a girl on a varsity high school football team, but Ocean Springs High in Mississippi has one in Kaylee Foster. But she didn’t just play in Friday night’s game, she was also crowned homecoming queen. And when she took off her crown to put her football helmet back on, she kicked the winning extra point and led her team to a 13-12 victory, according to local news reports.
Kaylee is primarily a soccer player, but she’s been kicking for the varsity football team since she was a sophomore, so she knows her way around the field. She also kicked two field goals earlier in the game, so it was a great night all around for the senior.
When asked if she was more nervous before the homecoming queen announcement or before the kick, she told “The Mississippi Press, “I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to be homecoming queen, but I was pretty sure I was going to make that kick.”
