High school majorette Audra Lewis doubles as kicker for football team

Audra-LewisSouth Allegheny (Pa.) High School senior Audra Lewis has quite a bit more on her plate than many of her classmates. Lewis is a majorette. She twirls batons at halftime during the school’s football games, which as you can imagine takes hours of repetition to perfect. I’m sure she gets plenty of practice in when she’s not working on kicking field goals.

That’s right, Lewis also doubles as South Allegheny’s kicker. When the last second ticks off the clock in the first half, she rushes to the locker room to change into her majorette outfit to prepare for her halftime performance.

“It is very difficult,” Lewis said on The Hines Ward Show. “I don’t have a lot of time to change. It’s so quick that my majorettes have to come over and help me sometimes. It’ll be like 30 seconds left and my hair’s not (done) and my lipstick’s not on.”

Lewis was the backup kicker for the football team last season, but she earned the starting job this fall. She also happens to be a talented soccer player.

“She’s like Superman, changing those outfits,” South Allegheny football coach Pat Monroe told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Last year, I think she got her feet wet a little just coming out for the team. “But she worked hard in the offseason and she’s a tremendous athlete. She’s a tremendous soccer player, and her kicking is not [just] a novelty by any stretch of the imagination. I have faith in her, and the kids respect her.”

What does this all mean? In the past week we have shown you a 335-pound nose tackle who doubles as a cheerleader and a baton twirler who can also boot field goals. What do you do on Friday nights?
