Florida Saw Its First Ever Female High School Quarterback This Weekend
Erin DiMeglio made Florida high school sports history Friday night. She became the first girl to ever take a snap in a regular season high school football game in the state’s history when she came in to take two snaps, both handoffs, for South Plantation in their 31-14 victory over Nova.
DiMeglio is not nearly the first girl to partake in Florida high school football, but by all accounts is the first to helm the sport’s most important position. According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, 523 girls have played high school football since 1973 and 36 played last year. Allegedly, none had ever taken a regular season snap under center, until DiMeglio.
According to DiMeglio herself, she’s just a basketball player trying to show recruiters and colleges that her athletic prowess is second-to-none, and that she can throw a football and handle that kind of pressure just as well as she can shoot a basketball.
A gutty, impressive venture from the 17-year-old.
