Florida teen gets her chance to play quarterback

Posted: September 1, 2012 - 11:16pm

PLANTATION, Fla. — 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 has been known to play football in parking lots.

She also has a ponytail sticking out of her helmet.

Here are Erin Dimeglio’s stats from Friday night: No passes, no yards, no touchdowns, and that’s all irrelevant. The senior is 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.

“To us, she’s a pretty humble, regular kid,” said Kathleen Dimeglio, Erin’s mother.
