Brianna Amat Named Homecoming Queen then Kicks Game-Winning FG

You'd have to suspect that last Friday night was the best night in Brianna Amat's young life -- the Michigan teen was named her school's homecoming queen, then she went out and kicked the game-winning field goal for the school's football team.

Yes, Brianna plays on the boys football team.

My Fox Detroit reports that at halftime of Pickney High School's homecoming game, Brianna got a note to come out of the locker room and onto the field where she was crowned homecoming queen.

"I knew I was up for a nomination but I never thought in a million years I would actually win," Brianna said.

But her winning wasn't over for the night. When the game resumed, the football coach called upon Brianna to kick what turned out to be the winning 31-yard field goal.

"I was told that they were all cheering after the [field] goal, but I couldn't hear any of them. I was totally zoned out because I was so focused on the game. I just really wanted to win."

Brianna played girls soccer at the school, but also had a desire to try her hand, or her foot, actually, at football. The coach gave her a tryout, which she obviously passed.

Brianna is a senior who will study business advertising next year at Western Michigan University. No word if she will go out for football there, too.
