High School Kicker Kendyl Terrell makes Mississippi state title history

Back in August, in what was the season-opening game against a rival, Kendyl Terrell made history. She did so by becoming the first female in Hattiesburg High history to kick (and convert) an extra point.

Terrell made history again this past weekend.

Kendyl Terrell became the first female to score points in an MHSAA State Championship Football Game after converting an extra point.

Two days prior to her historic kick, Terrell's father, Clemon Terrell, a former running back for USM, tragically passed away. Through this tragedy, Kendyl Terrell still found a way to play and to make history. Her father would be proud.

Terrell is also a star on the Volleyball court. She was named The Pine Belt Sports Volleyball Player of the Year in November.


Check out the historic kick below.
