Antoinette Harris, who rose to fame following her role in Toyota's commercial during Super Bowl LIII, has made history by becoming the first female position player to earn a college football scholarship. The 5'7" free safety signed a letter of intent to play football next fall at Central Methodist University in Fayette, Missouri. Harris, a junior at East Los Angeles College, said that she had received offers from five other schools.
"I picked Central Methodist because of the resilience within the school itself and how Coach Calloway had been communicating with me before the Super Bowl stuff ever popped up," Harris said in a press release.
Harris isn't happy just making history in college sports. Her ultimate goal is to become the first female player in the NFL and she one day hopes to suit up for the Seattle Seahawks.
"I believe I’m going to be the first female NFL player," Harris told the Detroit Free Press. "But if it just so happens that I’m not, I want to make sure there’s a way paved for the next little girl that can get there."
