A Female High School Student Just Made NCAA History

Becca Longo is an Arizona high school student who just made history as she signed with Division II Adams State on Wednesday to kick for the team.

So how did she make history?

She’s the first female football player still in high school to sign a letter of intent to play college football at any of the NCAA’s top two levels.

It wasn’t until she signed that she was aware of her unique position.

“I didn’t know that until today,” Longo told ESPN. “I’m still in shock from it. I’m just amazed.”

According to AZ Central, Longo was 30-33 on extra points in 2016 and also made a 30-yard field goal. Per ESPN, she was 35-38 on PATs.

“I contacted them during the season, and after the season I got contacted back by them,” she told the AZ Central. “The offensive coordinator (Josh Blankenship), he told me he wanted me to come out for a visit.

“I went on my visit and I absolutely fell in love.”

Longo will be one of three kickers on the roster at Adams State.
