Sarah Fuller is taking the next step in her career as the standout Vanderbilt Commodores soccer player is transferring to North Texas to continue her career.
She will be a graduate transfer for the Mean Green soccer team next season.
Over the past few weeks, Fuller became the first woman to play and to score points in a Power 5 college football game. She joined the Vanderbilt football team in November after COVID-19 issues impacted the special teams’ unit.
She broke barriers by handling kickoffs and scoring PAT’s for Vanderbilt.
North Texas head coach John Hedlund noted that Fuller will bring veteran experience to the Men Green roster.
“A big part of our championship success at UNT has always been having a great keeper in goal for us throughout my time here,” Hedlund said on National Signing Day via the team website. “Sarah brings that presence with her experience as the starter for Vanderbilt this season and playing in the SEC. At 6-foot-1 she has the size, athletic ability and obviously, the experience to dominate in goal and add to our eight championships in C-USA. We’re excited to have Sarah for the next two years working on her master’s degree here at UNT. Welcome home!”
It was just a few days ago when she announced that her football career had come to an end after the Commodores cancelled their final game of the year.
“It looks like my time as a football player has come to an end,” Fuller wrote on social media. “I would like to personally thank the entire Vanderbilt football team, coaches, and support staff for this amazing opportunity to be a part of this program. I was accepted as an athlete and a true member of this team.
“This is an experience that I will never forget and will cherish forever. Good luck to the seniors and staff who are moving on to new adventures. My best wishes to the team as this program moves forward and continues to grow.”
