High School Girl Crowned Homecoming Queen, Kicks Winning Field Goal in Same Night

If Hollywood pooled its top writers together, they couldn’t have put together a better script than this. High school senior Brianna Amat kicked the winning field goal for Pinckney High in Michigan Friday night, the same night she learned she had won homecoming queen.

Amat is a star player on the school’s soccer team, and she began kicking for the football team after telling her soccer coach that she wanted to kick for the football team as well. She’s made four field goals and seven extra points on the year, but none were bigger than the one she made Friday night.

Amat nailed a career-best 31-yard field goal in the third quarter against Grand Blanc to make it 9-7. Her field goal wound up being the winning kick as Pinckney knocked off the No. 7 team in the state. But the story doesn’t end there.

Before kicking the winning field goal, Amat was called out of the team’s locker room during halftime. To her surprise, she was crowned homecoming queen during the game.

It’s a story you can watch in the video above, or probably in a movie theater in a few years. Amat should also be reminded that her career doesn’t have to end after high school; some colleges are willing to try out female kickers. If Amat can improve on her distance, she could take her “kicking queen” act to the next level. If she does, we know she’ll be a hit.

    She already kicks better than West Virginia University’s kicker/punter.

    She could get a free ride at West Point, or one of the other Service Academies. I once say a documentary where the West Point admissions committee was hearing brief summaries on files of women who were being considered for admission.  One file summary said that she was the starting goalie for her high school’s State champion hockey team.  The reader paused amd paused, then added for the boys.  She was enthusiastically admiited without further discussion of her file.

    I graduated from West Point 30 yeas ago; my classmates and others now run the place.

    Good for her, she should be proud of her accomplishment.   I also played football for a Michigan school on the boys team in high school.  I played half back, and scored several 2 point conversions.  I even had a team forfiei because they wouldn’t play a team with a girl on it and my coach refused to bench me.

    Everyone gets a “free ride” at the service academies, you just have to serve in the military after graduation.

    As someone who has a daughter, I would say this young lady is a great example/role model. Doing a sport doesn’t make you less feminine, and being elegant and popular doesn’t mean you can’t be athletic. Way to aheieve that balance.
