Erin DiMeglio hits the field, becomes first female quarterback in Florida varsity football history

Instead, Paladins coach Doug Gatewood decided to break through a metaphorical glass ceiling, inserting his backup quarterback for two snaps. Her name is Erin DiMeglio, and she is believed to have become the first girl in state history to play quarterback in a varsity high school football game as a result. According to the Associated Press, some 500 girls have played for Florida football teams, but none have ever entered the game as a quarterback.

There are no official records of other girls who have played quarterback in varsity games in other states, so it remains unknown if DiMeglio is just the first girl to play the position at a varsity level in Florida or the first girl to play the position anywhere in the nation. Either way, the accomplishment is a notable one.

Prep Rally and others have profiled DiMeglio's passing talent in recent weeks as the specter of her historic first loomed. Still, there was no sense that she would get on the field as early as week one. Her odds seemed even more remote in the first half, with host Nova jumping out to a 14-10 halftime lead.
