COLOMA, Mich. — A senior at a southwestern Michigan high school was elected homecoming queen while a member of its varsity football team, The Herald-Palladium of St. Joseph reported Sunday.
Sabrina Ball is a reserve receiver and defensive back at Coloma High School. She was elected homecoming queen for Friday’s game and also performed a trumpet solo as a member of the marching band during pre-game ceremonies.
“All my friends wanted a football player to win it because they thought it would be funny,” Sabrina told the newspaper. “And it is funny, and everybody thinks it’s pretty cool.”
She took homecoming photos Friday in her uniform, but didn’t get to play in the team’s 21-13 loss to Delton Kellogg.
Sabrina started playing football at age 7 and participated in youth football programs in the community southwest of Grand Rapids. She also was a starter on the offensive and defensive lines on the school’s junior varsity team.
“I really do like to do girly stuff, but I like to play football, and I’m not afraid of stuff, either,” Sabrina said.
