LSU Tigers football hopeful Mo Isom is entering her third day of spring practice tryouts. Yes, that's "her," in case you're just now joining us. The women's soccer goalie is attempting to become the first woman to ever play in the SEC and college football's first female player in almost a decade.
She says she hit two 50-yard field goals on Thursday after a windy Tuesday. She also confirms teams are going to try and pin the ball between the goal line and the five on kickoffs, negating the NCAA's attempt to cut down on kick returns by changing touchback rules.
She'll meet with Les Miles after a weekend away from the practice field:
Great day on the gridiron. Much more consistent on field goals. Still have room to improve, but am pretty pleased. Will meet w/ Miles Monday— Mo Isom (@MoIsom89) March 9, 2012
But even if the answer's no, it doesn't sound like Miles is gonna get rid of her that easily. Not that anybody wants to get rid of Meaux, of course:
I look forward to feedback from the coaches. If I make it this Spring, great. If not, u better believe I'll b working hard & trying in Fall!— Mo Isom (@MoIsom89) March 9, 2012
