Becca Longo: Female Kicker Makes College Football History With Scholarship
Becca Longo, a high school senior in Arizona, began playing football competitively as a sophomore and it paid off this week after she made history by signing a letter of intent to play football at Adams State University, an NCAA Division II school in Alamosa, Colorado.
Longo, who is 18, is the first female to earn a football scholarship to an NCAA school at the Division II level or higher.
“I didn’t know that until today,” Longo told ESPN. “I’m still in shock from it. I’m just amazed.”
Longo was 35-for-38 on PATs during the 2016 season. She also connected on her lone field-goal attempt—a 30-yarder.
