Girl to play college football, and not at kicker
 
So, she can supposedly shut down a whole side of the field? Mention Deion Sanders as a comparison? Jeez. The girl didn't even make a tackle the whole year...

Osborne admits because of her lack of strength, she isn’t primed to make tackles — she didn’t make one at corner last season — but rather she focuses on simply shutting her side of the field down and not letting opposing receivers make catches.
I mean, shutting down your side of the field is exactly what you want to do as a corner.

I'd like to see her tackle Mike Davis in the open field.


edit: just joking, obviously don't wanna see her try to tackle MD. Lighten up

Somebody will blow her up next year to make a point.

Her film on the website shows her getting manhandled on blocks and missing tackles...

This is all a publicity stunt for the college. If those were supposed to be highlights, I'm scared to see what he other plays look like.

Those were highlights? Can a prospect get no stars as a rating?

So, good she doesn't have to tackle? LOL. Here comes the Clemson full-court press.

Her father should know better than to let his daughter take the pounding she will get attempting to 'play' college football.

Reminds me of what happened when this female running back tried to play arena football. It was painful to watch:

Let's clear this up for a second... the comparison between her and Sanders had nothing to do with cover skills. They were pointing to Deion's lack of will to tackle. Much like comparing Chris Farley to Winston Churchill, at one point they were both above average weight for their height.

There is something to be said for her willingness to train and attempt to play defensive back but this is clearly majority publicity stunt for this school, and not a bad move IMO. She was only used in mop up duty during blow out games, that rarely merits 80% scholarship.

That said, if they were to make a game available for me to watch, I would tune in. Like I said, not a bad move IMO.

This cannot be serious, right? All her "highlights" show are the other team running the ball and her being blocked. There is that dandy at the end where she runs onto the field late as part of the FG team...
