High School Majorette Doubles As Kicker For Football Team [Video]

A high school student didn’t let her gender limit her chances on the football field.

South Allegheny (Pa.) High School senior Audra Lewis doubles as a kicker on the school’s football team and a majorette during halftime. At the end of the first half, Lewis rushes to the locker room to change into her majorette outfit to prepare for her halftime performance.

“It is very difficult,” Lewis said on The Hines Ward Show. “I don’t have a lot of time to change. It’s so quick that my majorettes have to come over and help me sometimes. It’ll be like 30 seconds left and my hair’s not (done) and my lipstick’s not on.”

Lewis was the backup kicker for the football team last season, but she earned the starting job this fall. She also plays on the soccer team.

“She’s like Superman, changing those outfits,” South Allegheny football coach Pat Monroe told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Last year, I think she got her feet wet a little just coming out for the team. “But she worked hard in the offseason and she’s a tremendous athlete. She’s a tremendous soccer player, and her kicking is not [just] a novelty by any stretch of the imagination. I have faith in her, and the kids respect her.”
