Ok, I guess I'm a deep-down sexist. I admit, when I first heard that a high school girl threw for a touchdown (becoming the first girl to do so in Florida, and maybe anywhere), I figured it was a screen pass. "No way did she chuck one downfield," I thought to myself.
I. Was. Wrong.
Now, she throws more like Carol Brady than Tom Brady, but she heaved it down the field so her receiver could make a play on it. For any gender in most high school football games, that's pretty good!
Congratulations Holly Neher of Hollywood Hills High near Miami. That, by the way, was her first pass of the game, doing some clean-up duty in what ended up a 21-7 loss. She went 2-for-4 for 66 yards and a TD in the game. She put points on the board. QB controversy at Hollywood Hills?
