(FOX NEWS) – High school senior Ariel Orona made history last week when she became the first woman to throw a touchdown pass at her school – and possibly in the state of California.

In a sport that rarely sees women take the field – and even then almost always as a kicker – the 17-year-old plays wide receiver for the Silver Creek High School football team in San Jose.

“I was excited,” Orona told KTVU. “I’ve been practicing the last three weeks, practicing that throw over and over again.”
