For Alicia Woollcott, a senior at Grand Blanc (Michigan) High School Friday night was an exciting night.
During halftime of Friday night’s football game, Woollcott, linebacker for the Grand Blanc Bobcats, was crowned homecoming queen.
Along with playing football, Woollcott is a multi-sport athlete. She competes in competitive cheerleading, water polo and powerlifting.
Woollcott began playing football in eighth grade, she told MLive.com, "I used to watch football with my dad when I was younger and he has three daughters, no boys," Woollcott said. "I was cheering on the sideline in seventh grade and I hated it and I told him I would much rather be out there with them…”, she has been playing football since then.
Grand Blanc fell to Churchill (Livonia, Michigan) 21-9 on Friday night, leaving both teams with 6-1 records.
It’s cool to see the Homecoming Queen in a football jersey. Congrats, Alicia Woollcott. pic.twitter.com/ktzAF8gxem— Eric Woodyard (@E_Woodyard) October 7, 2017
