VIDEO: Kendall Breland becomes first girl to score TD in Mississippi prep football

By

Kendall Breland, a 5-foot-8 senior from Laurel, Miss., became the first female high school football player to score a touchdown in the state of Mississippi, according to LuckyShow.org, a site that tracks touchdowns by females.

Breland, usually a defensive tackle, scored on a 1-yard run in the first quarter. Laurel won the game, 61-14, against Wingfield (Jackson, Miss.).

“She is special,” coach Todd Breland told The Chronicle. “She’s been with us for three years now and she’s never asked for anything. I don’t think she has ever missed a practice. It’s something we planned to do if we had the opportunity.

“The rest of the team took a lot of pride in what we did,” Breland added. “I don’t think you could have put the Green Bay Packers’ defensive line in front of them and stop them from letting her get in the end zone.”
