You’ll Never Guess What Vandy Kicker Sarah Fuller’s Doing This Week

Sarah Fuller, the first woman to kick an extra point in a FBS game, appears to have a big week coming up. She’s planning to attend Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday.

“It’s an honor to be invited to participate in one of America’s greatest traditions. This historic inauguration is especially meaningful for American women and girls. The glass ceilings are breaking and it is the time to #LeadLikeAWoman,” Fuller wrote before tagging Vice President Kamala Harris before Biden.

Fuller, who crushed two extra points in a 42-17 loss to Tennessee as the Commodores closed out the season 0-9, has spent her offseason doing things like going home to Wylie, Texas and having a day named after her.

The soccer-goalie-turned-extra-point-specialist will be joined by other heavy hitters such as Lady Gaga singing the national anthem and J. Lo doing some sort of musical performance that will cause ARod to smile and nod along.

Besides her two extra points against the Vols and her charity kickoff against Missouri, Fuller is best known for giving a halftime speech to her teammates BEFORE she had played in a game.

“My main thing was during the SEC tournament, my entire team was cheering the entire time. It didn’t matter if we were in the locker room or if they were on the sidelines, I think that’s what won it for us. Everybody was cheering non-stop. I just went in there, and I said exactly what I was thinking,” Fuller said of her halftime speech. “I was like, ‘We need to be cheering each other on. This is how you win games. This is how you get better by calling each other out for stuff, and I’m going to call you guys out.’

“We need to be supporting one another. If we get a first down, if an interception happens, it’s our fault. We need to be lifting each other up. That’s what a team’s about. I think this team has struggled, and that’s been part of it. We really just need to build that team camaraderie where they can all lean on one another. It was an adjustment going from that team mentality where – hey, we’re all here supporting one another, and I just wanted to bring that to this team.”

Fuller then went out and crushed the second-half kickoff. She was named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week for her effort in the 41-0 loss.

  1. Does she realize breaking a glass ceiling causes shards of glass to fall all over the place and possibly impale you? Because that’s what Cabala is going to do once they decide to 25th amendment ole Joe.

  2. Vanderbilt should create a scholarship fund in Fuller’s name for bravely putting her uniform on correctly, name a university street after her for warming up on the field before games, and build a statue to her outside Dudley Field for drinking Gatorade from the men’s cooler on the sidelines during two consecutive games. A truly amazing feat for women across the world. She should start a speaking tour of how amazingly difficult it was for her to overcome all the challenges of wearing a helmet. I would rank her just below Gloria Steinem in terms of impact for women in history.

  3. “Fuller then went out and crushed the second-half kickoff. She was named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week for her effort in the 41-0 loss.”

    Legend.

  4. I’m just curious how a white privileged female got this gig over a woman of color. Going to tell me that an African American woman wasn’t as athletic and qualified as Fuller? Vanderbilt should be cancelled. They seem to be a systemically racist institution that should be kicked out of their conference. No athlete of color should attend this school for the foreseeable future. And Fuller gets a seat at the table for a historic event that is a presidential inauguration? Taking the place of a woman of color? This should not be tolerated.

    • Agreed 100%. There has to be at least one woman of color on the Vanderbilt women’s soccer team. I mean come on. That is it I am writing that bald lady Congresswoman Pressley or Stacy Abrams about this. There needs to be an investigation for sure.

  5. I for the life of me cannot understand why she was allowed to make a halftime speech. What the hell for? Fuller was not a full-time player and had not seen action before. So, why was she allowed to speak to a team that went through practices, prior games without her? This whole episode reeks. Whoever planned it should be fired. Unless it was the Biden campaign that orchestrated it. 🙂

  6. Come on guys, when she gave that speech at halftime, they were down 21-0. After her speech they were so inspired they went out and lost the second half 20-0. They did improve some by a point.

  7. She thoroughly emasculated the entire Vanderbilt football program with that halftime speech. One of the players should have told her to shut the fuck up. But, then again, that player probably would have been kicked out of school.

  8. I was initially against it, this changes my mind. Time to let the trans-women all in, if they think this is a woman conquering men’s sports, let’s go the other way and see what happens. Caitlyn proved it, sometimes the best woman for a job….
