BCMS player makes
school football history

By Shirley Shuman
For most people, girls and football do not go together unless they picture the cheerleaders on the sidelines. However, that concept is changing in Braxton County as both the high school and middle school teams include girls. Not until last Thursday night, however, has any female scored a touchdown. Rylan Prunty, who plays tight end for the Knights, changed that—and made school football history, as she scored her first touchdown.
Coach James King reported that Prunty, an eighth-grader in her second year on the football team, caught a 30-yard pass from Knights’ quarterback Logan Bennett on the five yard line and “carried two defenders into the end zone for the TD.” He added, “She was definitely determined to score.” Asked how she felt when she scored, she answered, “I was super-excited.”
Explaining that she chose to play football because she “like[s] contact sports,” Prunty said that the best part of playing football “is making tackles and memories.” She added, “The hardest part is practicing and playing in the heat.”
Although in some areas, male football players and their coaches have strongly objected to having girls on their teams, Prunty hasn’t experienced that. “The boys on the team don’t seem to mind having girls playing football,” she said.
The record-setting young woman has not decided whether she is going to play high school football next year. However, if she does, the Eagles may well be able to use a good tight end.
Rylan is the daughter of Tara and Roy Prunty of Burnsville.
