Girl Performs as Majorette and Football Kicker

No downtime on gameday for Audra Lewis–the South Allegheny (McKeesport, Penn.) High School student plays on the football team as kicker and performs with the marching band as a majorette for halftime.

From Yahoo Sports:

“She’s like Superman, changing those outfits,” South Allegheny football coach Pat Monroe told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in a story on Lewis.

Also a three-time All-Section soccer star for the Gladiators, Lewis served as the backup kicker on a South Allegheny squad that finished 7-3 last season. That made pulling double duty as a majorette during halftime a bit easier during her junior year.

Now a senior, she earned the starting job this fall and scored the only points on a 31-yard field goal in the Gladiators’ 31-3 opening night loss to Pittsburgh’s Seton La Salle High.

“Last year, I think she got her feet wet a little just coming out for the team,” Monroe told the Post-Gazette. “But she worked hard in the offseason and she’s a tremendous athlete. She’s a tremendous soccer player, and her kicking is not [just] a novelty by any stretch of the imagination. I have faith in her, and the kids respect her.”
