First Woman Ever Tries Out At NFL Combine
(FOX) – A former college soccer player tried to kick through the glass ceiling of the NFL, but came up short. Twenty-eight year-old Lauren Silberman became the first woman to try out for the league, at the regional scouting combine in New Jersey.
She made two poor kickoff attempts and aggravated a quadriceps injury she suffered in training last week.
Silberman is an MIT graduate and had no experience playing football.
