A teenager built history Thursday night when she became the first female to ever throw a touchdown pass for a Florida high school.
Hollywood Hills High School’s Holly Neher hurled a 42 -yard touchdown pass to Alexander Shelton late in the fourth quarter of a 21 -7 loss to Hallandale High School. It was the first pass of her high school football career.
“I was like, ‘I’m going to throw to Alex, ‘ so I threw to Alex, ” Neher told Fox 13 News. “I scarcely insured him. I watched only the little orange of his shirt and I hurled to him, and he caught it because I know he’s going to be in the right place. So then, he objective up scoring and everybody ran crazy. My teammates were jumping on me, they were so happy. Coach was happy, the fans were wild, but I was shocked. I was like ‘oh my gosh, I did it’. I was so happy.”
Neher is not the first female to play football in Broward County, which is north of Miami in South Florida. In 2012, South Plantation’s Erin Dimeglio played quarterback.
Neher finished video games going 2 for 4 with 66 yards — and one touchdown pass.
