People assume that all beauty queens do is smile, wave, and be pretty. But one Mississippi teen proved that pageant girls can be athletic, too!

Kaylee Foster, a senior at Ocean Springs High School in Mississippi, has done something pretty incredible. Just three hours after being crowned as the 2018 Ocean Springs High School homecoming queen, she kicked the game-winning extra point to win the Homecoming game.

The newly crowned Homecoming Queen traded her tiara to a helmet to beat the George County Rebels 13-12. Seven of the teams 13 points came from two Foster field goals and the game-winning extra point in overtime.

“I really don’t have any words,” Foster said afterwards, standing on the field in her football uniform, as she posed for numerous photo requests. “This has just been so wonderful. I love football, and I love Ocean Springs.”

Kaylee Foster had always been a soccer player at heart and has been a part of the varsity team since her sophomore year. For four years, she has been a member of the homecoming court.

Greyhounds head coach Ryan Ross said he wanted to check to see how unique Friday’s events were.

“I’d like to check the whole country and see if it’s ever happened before,” Ross said of the homecoming queen winning the game. “It certainly makes for a memorable weekend for the whole team, but especially Kaylee. It’s a big night for her. I’m proud of her, and I’m proud of the team.”

When asked about what made her nervous more, winning the game or the homecoming queen title, Foster revealed that she was more confident in her kick than nabbing the crown, saying “I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to be homecoming queen, but I was pretty sure I was going to make that kick.”
