COLOMA, Mich. (AP) — A senior at a southwestern Michigan high school has been elected homecoming queen while a member of its varsity football team.

The Herald-Palladium of St. Joseph reports Sunday that Sabrina Ball also plays for Coloma High School’s marching band and performed a trumpet solo prior to the homecoming game.

She is a reserve receiver and defensive back on the football team. She didn’t get to play in Friday’s 21-13 loss to Delton Kellogg.

Sabrina told the newspaper Saturday that her “friends wanted a football player” as homecoming queen “because they thought it would be funny.”

Sabrina started playing football at age 7 and participated in youth football programs in the Berrien County community.
