After a Mississippi high school football team tied the game in overtime on Friday, Kaylee Foster knew her team was going to win. Earlier in the night, Foster was named homecoming queen, an unexpected honor for the senior at Ocean Springs High School in Ocean Springs, Miss. She posed for photos with her flowers and crown, grinning from ear to ear on the football field, with her family and friends looking on from the stands at Greyhound Stadium.
"Homecoming Queen Swaps Tiara for Her Football Helmet, Kicks Winning Point Before Frenzied Crowd" is from the September 10, 2018 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Timothy Bella and narrated by Sam Scholl.
