WASHINGTON, DC — Sarah Fuller, the former Vanderbilt University kicker and soccer player who became the first woman to play in a Power Five conference football game, is scheduled to participate in the inaugural ceremony of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on Wednesday, according to reports.

Fuller tweeted on Sunday that it is “an honor to participate in one of America’s greatest traditions” and wrote, “this historic inauguration is especially meaningful for American women and girls. The glass ceilings are breaking and it is time to #LeadLikeAWoman.” She included the Twitter handles of Biden and Harris in her tweet.


Yahoo! Sports' Pete Thamel reported that Fuller taped a video for the inauguration last week at Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville last week.


Fuller, who is the starting goalkeeper for the Vanderbilt soccer team, joined the school’s football team last season due to an outbreak of the coronavirus on the team. After making her first appearance with the team in a game against Missouri, Fuller kicked two extra points in a loss to Tennessee.

“The whole time has been if I can do it, if I’m good enough to do it,” Fuller told reporters after the Tennessee game last month. “It wasn’t if I was a girl or not. So that’s something I’ve really appreciated. At the end of the day, they treated me like an athlete and that’s the best I could ask for.”
