Erin DiMeglio, a 17-year-old senior at South Plantation High School, is believed to be the first girl to play quarterback in a Florida high school football game.
“We’d be warming up, and people would stop over and wait for her to throw to see if she could play,” the Paladins’ starting quarterback, John Franklin, said. “And then they’d walk away like, ‘Oh, they have a girl, and she’s for real.’ ”
THEY HAVE A GIRL, AND SHE’S FOR REAL
I love this. Happy football season!
