April Goss is believed to be the only woman on the roster of a Division One college football team. The coach vows she'll play, but she didn't last week when the team lost to Illinois 52-3.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. We're waiting for April Goss to get a chance on the football field. She's the kicker for Kent State. I did say she. She is believed to be the only woman on the roster of a Division One college football team. She once kicked an extra point in a spring game, and the coach says she'll play sometime this regular season. Of course, you need to send in a player at the perfect time, and last Saturday was not that time as Kent State lost to Illinois 52-3. It's MORNING EDITION.
