Female LSU student to try out for the university’s famed football program

BATON ROUGE, La. – An LSU soccer player will get her chance on Tuesday to see if she has what it takes to be in the school’s acclaimed football program.

The LSU Tigers wrapped up their first weekend of spring football on Sunday.However, things will get heated up as former LSU soccer player Mo Isom will get her big tryout.

Isom, who is six feet tall, worked out with the football team in September, practicing kickoffs and field goals. Though she is a senior, she would have one year of eligibility should she land a spot on the football roster.

While few women have played at the top level of the collegiate game, Isom would not be the first.That honor belongs to Katie Hnida. In 2003, she became the first woman to kick for an NCAA Division I-A (now the Football Bowl Subdivision) football team, participating in one regular season game and in the Las Vegas Bowl as part of the University of New Mexico program.

Ashley Martin was the first woman to kick in the lower-level I-AA division, suiting up with Jacksonville State University in 2001.
