Summerville High’s History-Making Kicker

SC Focus logo

  Number 38 on the Summerville High School football team has a different approach to the game. That’s because #38 is different, a first for the Green Wave: she’s a girl. Emaleigh Tuggle came to the team as a kicker, also having played on the school’s girls’ soccer team. She talks about what it’s like being the only girl on the team, and her coach, Joe Call, discusses what he saw in her that convinced him she’d make a good addition to the team. They both think more girls should, and most likely will, play football.
