Girl Kicks for Willamette High Football

Emily MogstadEUGENE, Ore. — The kicker on this year’s Willamette High School Football Team has made every attempt so far.

Pretty impressive, given she’s a girl on what’s typically an all-boy team.

Emily Mogstad is one busy junior. She’s taking a full schedule, and playing soccer and football. She actually played on the JV team last year, but her conflicts with soccer didn’t allow her to be as involved.

This year, her coaches and her teammates have been especially supportive and accommodating to her packed schedule.

While she’s been getting a lot of attention over her varsity placement, Emily doesn’t see much of a difference at all playing on this field.

Emily says there’s not really any hard parts about playing on the team, just finding a place to change at away games.

Her coaches and teammates agree she’s just like any other player on the field, and she’s really proven herself in the last two games.
