February 7, 2022

Sarah Fuller, who became the first woman to score in a Power 5 football game as the Vanderbilt kicker in 2020, signed a contract with Minnesota Aurora FC of the USL W-League, the team announced on Monday.

Fuller, a former collegiate goalkeeper, is the first player signed by the Aurora. The USL W-League is a women’s pre-professional league that is set to begin play in 2022.

“Sarah is a fantastic player and an even better person,” Aurora coach Nicole Lukic said. “Having a leader like Sarah that has broken down barriers is a perfect fit for us.”
