Becca Longo is a high school senior from Arizona. In addition to attending prom and playing basketball, Becca’s also the starting kicker for the all-male varsity football team.
And she just became the first female athlete to win a full college scholarship to play Division II football at Adams State University in Colorado! “I remember opening my email and busting through my parents room, just screaming, ‘I did it! I got it!’ It was so exciting,” she says.
Becca says she’s dealt with negative reactions ever since she started playing football several years ago. “I don’t listen to it,” she explains. “It’s got me to where I am today. I just use it as motiviation.”
