Homecoming queen kicks dramatic game-winning field goal over rival


Just a week after being voted homecoming queen, Texas teen Claire Jeffress strapped on her football uniform and kicked five extra points, and the game-winning field goal, for her high school team. The 30-yard kick gave her school, Pearland Dawson, a 38-35 win over rivals Pearland last Friday night.

Jeffress, who also plays soccer for her school, had kicked a game-winning extra point for the football team two weeks before. And after Friday night’s victory, Jeffress’ coach said that he’d had full confidence that she would give their team the win. “Claire never gets rattled,” the coach declared.
