Sporting hot pink cleats, there's one member of the Community Christian School football team that stands out from the rest. Katie Davidson, a sophomore at Community Christian in Henry County (Ga.), is not only known as the starting place kicker on her school's seven-man, one-woman football team, but she's now also a role model for girls throughout her community. Until recently Community Christian required girls to wear a dress to the annual homecoming game. But when Davidson was nominated for homecoming court, it became clear that the rules needed to change. In order to accommodate Davidson as both a female member of the homecoming court and a football player, the school updated its official homecoming regulations to allow the girls to wear football uniforms.
Katie played the game in her pink cleats -- kicking four extra points in the first half -- and was elected sophomore princess the next night at the homecoming dance.
