Michigan homecoming queen kicks winning field goal

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

PINCKNEY, Mich.>> Shortly after being named homecoming queen, a Michigan girl gave her fellow students another big reason to cheer.

Brianna Amat kicked the field goal that proved to be the difference as Pinckney Community High School beat Grand Blanc 9-7 on Friday. Earlier, she rode in Pinckney’s homecoming parade, wearing her football uniform, along with the team’s quarterback.

She tells the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell that after the soccer season ended last school year she gave field goal kicking a try at the urging of the school’s coaches. She grew up playing soccer, and has been at it since age 3.

She credits her teammates for helping her kick, especially the two who snap and hold the ball for her.
