Vanderbilt kan hom tot die doelwagter Sarah Fuller wend om in te vul as skopper vs.. Missouri

Vanderbilt may turn to a women’s soccer player to fill the kicker position for Saturday’s game.

Sarah Fuller practiced with the Commodores’ football team and could be an option for the game against Missouri oor die naweek, coach Derek Mason said Wednesday.

“She’s really good with a soccer ball, she seems to be pretty good with a football so we’ll see,” Mason told reporters. “We’re keeping all options open right now, and we’ll get a chance to see what she does on Saturday if given the opportunity.”

Vanderbilt is set to play Mizzou on Saturday at noon if all things go well. A handful of SEC games have been postponed this season because of positive coronavirus tests. Mason said that players on special teams have been experiencing illnesses but he didn’t say whether any have tested positive for COVID-19.

Voller, a goalkeeper, would replace Pierson Cookie and Wes Farley. Cooke is vanjaar 3-vir-7 en Farley is die rugsteun. Mason said he reached out to soccer coach Darren Ambrose about seeing whether Fuller would be interested. Fuller began kicking for the football team Tuesday.

'Ek wou net sien hoe sterk haar been was, en ek kan jou vertel dat sy 'n sterk been het,” Mason said. 'Ons sal sien wat dit lewer. Ek bedoel in terme van afstande, Ek praat nie daaroor nie. Ek het nog een soos elke dag om daar in te gaan en presies te evalueer waar sy sit. … Dit lyk asof sy 'n redelike goeie opsie is. '

If Fuller does appear for Vanderbilt on Saturday, she would be the first woman to do so for a Power 5 Conference school.

Sy het nege van Vanderbilt's begin 12 wedstryde gedurende die seisoen, drie uitsluitings en sewe oorwinnings op te neem. Sy het 'n 0.97 doelwitte teenoor gemiddeld.
