Women in Sports Virtual Event w/Sarah Fuller
Sarah Fuller, SEC women’s soccer champion and the first woman to appear and score in a Power 5 college football game, will speak during a free virtual event hosted by the Nashville Sports Council’s Women in Sports Initiative next week on Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 6:30 p.m.
Fuller made national headlines in 2020 after joining a depleted Vanderbilt football team, hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. In Vanderbilt’s game at Missouri on Nov. 28, Fuller became the first woman to appear in a Power 5 college football game. Her historic second-half kickoff came days after she helped guide Vanderbilt women’s soccer team to an SEC title. Just a few weeks later on Dec. 12 against rival Tennessee, Fuller became the first woman to score in a Power 5 football game.
This event will be moderated by Laura Rutledge, Host & Reporter for ESPN/SEC Network. Laura Rutledge is the host of ESPN’s year-round weekday NFL news and information show NFL Live and SEC Network’s SEC Nation. Since joining the company in 2014 as a reporter on SEC Network and ESPN, Rutledge has consistently expanded her portfolio.
