Kaylee Foster may have had the best homecoming ever.
On Friday, the Ocean Springs High School senior was named homecoming queen, receiving a large bouquet of roses and a shiny tiara. She wasn't able to wear her crown for too long, though — the Mississippi resident had to put on her football uniform and helmet, then join her teammates for the big game against George County High School.
Foster, a soccer player, joined the varsity football team during her sophomore year, and she's been kicking field goals ever since. She had two during the homecoming game, and in overtime, she kicked a field goal that gave her team a 13-12 victory. "I was pretty sure I wasn't going to be homecoming queen, but I was pretty sure I was going to make that kick," she told The Mississippi Press. Someone told Foster that a 9-year-old girl in the crowd announced to her father that the football-playing homecoming queen was "the kind of girl I want to be," and it brought a smile to Foster's face. "I love that," she said. "I think that it is so special." Catherine Garcia
