First Female FB Scholarship a Sign of the Times?

There have been perhaps a dozen women who have played college football, but none of them who played for NCAA-affiliated programs were on scholarship. That changed last week when Becca Longo became the first female to earn a scholarship in an NCAA Division I or II football program.  The Arizona high school kicker has signed a letter of intent with Division II Adams State University in Alamosa, Colorado.

Football has taken some hits in popularity and participation in recent years, due mostly to concussion concerns. The popularity of the sport among women, however, has been on a strong rising trend and that includes participation.  The number of women participating in the sport has increased over 150% in the past 17 years.
