Sarah Fuller Invited to Take Part in Inauguration

Sarah Fuller, a kicker for Vanderbilt, is infamous for making history by becoming the first woman to score in a Power Five conference football game. Due to her accomplishments and ability to inspire young girls across the nation, she has been invited to attend and take part in the upcoming inauguration.

On January 17, Fuller tweeted: “It’s an honor to be invited to participate in one of America’s greatest traditions. This historic inauguration is especially meaningful for American women and girls. The glass ceilings are breaking and it is time to #leadlikewoman.” She also tagged Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, the latter of whom is the first female Vice President-elect in United States history. Due to COVID-19 and the recent attacks on the Capitol, there will be heavy security and regulations in place at the inauguration for President-elect, Joe Biden.

Sarah Fuller first joined Vanderbilt University on a soccer scholarship in 2017. Her soccer career started off rough when she broke her foot and later suffered a stress fracture on her other foot. During her senior year, she had a remarkable season, as she helped the team win the SEC, or the Southeastern Conference Women’s Soccer Tournament. Not only did she also become the first woman to play football in a Power Five conference, but she is the third female in the Football Bowl Subdivision. From her athletic accomplishments and ability to inspire her teammates during the pandemic, Fuller continues to be a role model for millions of people.

Stopping Subconscious Bias in Sports is Something We All Need to Work on

There is no doubt that there is racism and bias in sports. Every single day, players face the harsh reality that they are often treated differently based on their race, religion, and/or sexual orientation. I believe that no matter how much we try to combat this issue in sports, there will always be some level of subconscious bias. No amount of education and punishment can completely eradicate the discrimination our country faces, but it is a good place to start.
