PLANTATION, Fla. (AP) — The third-string quarterback for South Plantation High School wears No. 13 as a tribute to Dan Marino, and her parents met at a Miami Dolphins game.
She also has a ponytail sticking out of her helmet.
Erin Dimeglio put up these stats on Friday night: No passes, no yards, no touchdowns. None of that matters, either. She's believed to be the first female to play quarterback for a Florida high school team, after taking two snaps — handing the ball off both times — in a 31-14 win over Nova High.
Her parents describe her as a "humble, regular kid." Humble, maybe. But her story is far from regular.
