PINCKNEY, Mich. (WJBK) - She's the first girl to kick on Pinckney's varsity football team. On Friday night, Brianna Amat kicked a 31-yard game-winning field goal and was crowned homecoming queen on the same night.


Amat was already a soccer star at Pinckney High. She told her soccer coach she wanted to kick footballs as well. Head football coach Dan Burholder was impressed, so he put her on the team. Friday night was Brianna's biggest game against Grand Blanc, who was ranked No. 7 in the state.

Brianna got a note at halftime telling her to come out of the locker room. To her surprise, she was crowned homecoming queen during the game.
With five minutes to play in the third quarter, facing a fourth and goal, Burkholder called Brianna to attempt a 31-yard field goal -- it would be her career best. She did it and Pinckney went on to beat Grand Blanc 9-7. The crowd went nuts, but Brianna says she only heard silence because she was so focused on the game. Amat plans to attend Western Michigan University and major in business advertising.

Can she play quarterback? How is she in the pocket (so to speak...)?

You could probably find a similar article about David Treadwell in the mid 80's.

We used to have a kicker that kicked without a shoe!

I'm serious! He was born in the jungle, where they don't have shoes. Or it was against his religion to wear shoes. It was something.

I heard he was a boy, though. So this is slightly different.

This was the guy, from before he played for the Broncos. Look, he isn't wearing a shoe!

He wore boot, it was the largest slipper I've ever seen in life, he just wore it on the sideline.

I wonder if the leaders of his jungle religion knew. They'd probably cut off his foot for that. "If thine foot doth offend, it is better that it be cut off, than to let it keep offending."

I'm paraphrasing, but that's basically what it says.

If he was fitted for a prosthetic, do you think he would be able to wear a shoe on it?

The question should be "is she 18 and would Spider hit it?"

I don't get what her being 18 has to do with that question?
