Former LSU homecoming queen and soccer goalie Mo Isom will be taking part in a three-day tryout as a kicker for the universities' football team.
Isom, who has one season of athletic eligibility remaining at LSU, could become the first woman to play for a Division 1 football team since Katie Hnida played for New Mexico in 2003.
It is unclear how the Tigers would make use of Isom as they already have an All-American punter in Brad Wing, as well as place kicker Drew Alleman and kick-off specialist James Hairston on the roster.
Isom posted on Facebook yesterday, Absolutely overwhelmed and humbled by all of the amazing support that has been pouring in surrounding tryouts. There is so much power in prayer, so please know that I truly appreciate every single one of you! Today is the first of a 3-day tryout, so I would appreciate continued prayer through this week. I will keep you all posted on results!
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. --Philippians 4:6
Isom undeniably has an incredible leg. She once knocked in a goal from 90-yards out for the LSU soccer team.
She also held her own against Wing in a skills competition as part of her Meaux vs. YouTube program. On the show she challenges LSU athletes to skills competitions that combine soccer with whatever their specialty is.
