Did you see this headline? - Homecoming queen kicks winning field goal
I thought it was a pretty neat story. A high school girl was crowned Homecoming Queen (in a football uniform with full pads) and then ends up kicking the winning field goal in the football game.
I always enjoy a lady who can turn stereotypes on their heads, especially if she can look good going it.
According to the article, this same young lady sports a 4.0 gpa and serves as the student body treasurer. Who can really tell from a newspaper article, but she seemed sweet and humble despite her impressive accomplishments.
I am a big fan of the fact that she is a good student. As much as I love the drama of a winning field goal, I'm a believer that academics have to come before extracurriculars.
I hope my daughter has plenty of role models like this in her future. I'd much rather she admire a football playing homecoming queen than Katy Perry and the rest of the current crop of pop queens.
I want my little girl to grow up knowning that she can be anything and that it's possible to be feminine and still kick a little ass.
