NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Vanderbilt student-athlete Sarah Fuller will be featured in a prime-time Inauguration special Wednesday night.

Fuller made history last fall when she took the field as a kicker for the football team, becoming the first female to play in a Power Five college football game. A senior from Wyle, Texas, Fuller also played for the women's soccer team throughout her Vanderbilt career.

Today Fuller shared she will be part of the "Celebrating America" feature celebrating the Presidential Inauguration, which will air at 7:30 p.m.

The 90-minute feature will be hosted by Tom Hanks and showcase remarks from President-Elect Biden, Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris and others.

"The program will celebrate American heroes who are helping their fellow Americans through this crisis, including frontline workers, health care workers, teachers, citizens giving back, and those who are breaking barriers," the Presidential Inaugural Committee said in a statement about the event.
