It appears that college football history has been made thanks to Becca Longo, a kicker from Basha High School in Arizona.
On Wednesday night, Longo signed a scholarship offer from Division II school Adams State. With the signing, Longo is believed to have become the first female football player to ever receive a football scholarship at the Division II level or higher.
Along with playing football, Longo plans to play college basketball.
“I didn’t know that until today,” Longo said in a report by ESPN. “I’m still in shock from it. I’m just amazed.”
Last season, Longo went 30-for-33 on extra point attempts and 1-for-1 on field goals, a 30-yarder.
The Adams State Grizzlies are currently a member of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference and led by head coach Timm Rosenbach, a former college and NFL quarterback. The school is located in Alamosa, Colorado.
