Unfortunately, Kacy has become famous not for her leg but her gender. Initially, she was barred from playing in the Georgia Football League, comprising teams of home-schoolers and small Christian academies, because sheâ€™s a girl. She was reinstated by the league only after the threat of a lawsuit.
That part of the story is fairly familiar, repeated elsewhere around the country in recent years in schools both public and private. But it took a twist last weekend when Kacy returned to the field for her first game with her New Creation team only to meet objections by her opponents.
â€œThe East Atlanta Mustangs didnâ€™t play us under protest but they were allowed to read a statement on their beliefs about female football players,â€ according to New Creation coach, Coach Ken Townley. â€œThey used biblical verses from the book of Romans. I was very stunned by that.â€
