Female quarterback Erin Dimeglio wins homecoming queen (Video)

Erin Dimeglio became national news in August when it was reported that she was believed to be the first female to play quarterback in Florida high school football history. Dimeglio is in the news again, and it’s for something she accomplished off the field.

The 17-year-old senior was voted homecoming queen at South Plantation (Fla.) High School. She was crowned at halftime of her team’s football game against Hollywood Hills on Thursday. Making matters more special was her teammate, Hordly Seide, winning homecoming king.

South Plantation won the game 18-0 to improve to 6-0, though Dimeglio did not play. She expressed gratitude to those who voted for her:

“It doesn’t get any better than that,” her mother, Kathleen, told CBS Miami. “I’m so proud of Erin for her determination and follow-through.”

Dimeglio also plays on the girls’ basketball team at South Plantation. CBS Miami reported that the young girl is hoping to play college basketball for the University of Central Florida.

The only thing missing from this story was Dimeglio kicking the winning field goal like the last female football player who was also voted homecoming queen.

    Congrats to Erin. She is now one step closer to making history.

    “CBS Miami reported that the young girl is hoping to play college basketball for the University of Central Florida.”

    Actually, I am determined to convince Erin to change her mind, and play
    college football. I will do whatever it takes for Erin to make history,
    and become the first female quarterback to sign a Letter of Intent to
    play for a college football program on Wednesday, February 6, 2013.
