MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minnesota Aurora FC finally got a name last week, and now it has its first player.

The community-owned women’s soccer team announced on Twitter that they have signed goaltender Sarah Fuller.

Fuller was a guard at Vanderbilt and the University of North Texas, but she’s probably best known for what she did on the (American) football field. In 2020, Fuller became the first woman to play in a Power 5 football game when she filled the kicker role for Vanderbilt. She appeared in two games for the Commodores, managing kickoffs and going 2-for-2 on extra runs. She was named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week for her breakthrough debut against Missouri.

Fuller was asked to introduce Vice President Kamala Harris via video at the inauguration of Harris and President Joe Biden.

“Sarah is a fantastic player and an even better person,” said head coach Nicole Lukic. “Having a leader like Sarah who broke down barriers suits us perfectly.”

Fuller was looking for Twin Cities taco recommendations on Twitter.
