When Braxton Fox injured his ACL in June, his football coach scrambled to find a new kicker for the Greenback Cherokees on such notice.
However, he didn't have to look far to find her.
"The day Braxton torn his ACL, my dad came up to me and said you may have to kick. We're going to practice tomorrow and see how it goes," Masey Fox, 15, said.
It seemed to have gone well for the sophomore soccer player, she made the team. On Friday, #19 made her debut in the Blount County Jamboree versus Heritage High School.
"She's real competitive, they're both competitive. If they don't do something well at first, they work at it," said Greenback head coach Justin Ridge.
Braxton gave his blessing for his sister to play.
"We know she was capable of it because of all the years of soccer," Braxton said. "She has been playing because we were really scrambling."
Masey had to learn everything about football, from the inside out, in a month's time.
"I've learned how a football team functions. I didn't know all the stuff they practiced, and all the stuff they do, and how they talk," she added.
Being the only girl on this team does have its advantages and disadvantages.
She has support from the team, but football is still a male-dominated sport. "I change in the car and that's all I do, while (the other players) get in the locker room," Masey smiled.
Five minutes into her first game, Masey scored her very first extra point. She was proud, but admittedly nervous about filling in her brother's shoes.
"People walk by me and say, 'kicker- that's the kicker," she smiled.
She knows this is only temporary, Braxton will be back to play as soon as his ACL heals. Coach Ridge said while Braxton will have his old spot back as lead kicker, Masey will be on the roster as long as she wants.
