More high schools are putting girls on their football teams
In the past five years, girls like Abbi Strack have been hitting the turf and leaving stereotypes behind. While it has become more common for high schools to include girls on their football teams, Theresa Dion set the stage for these inspirational young women in 1972 when she became the first woman to play high school football in the U.S.
From Florida to California, women like Erin DiMeglio and Sami Grisafe are changing the high school football world as we know it.
In recent news, Brooke Liebsch, a 14-year-old high schooler in Liberty, Missouri became the first female football player at her school. Brooke is more than just a team player, though: She's the quarterback-- as a freshman!
When asked about her experience as a female high school quarterback, Brooke told Fox 4 KC:
Brooke even proves this on her uniform with the sticker on the back of her helmet that reads, "You have just been hit by a girl." You go, Brooke!
