WICKLIFFE, Ohio -- A Wickliffe High School senior is making history as the first ever female place kicker at her school and her position on the football team is far from her only after-school activity.

Logan Molnar is a four-year starter on the varsity soccer team. She's also a member of the school band and this year, she's the kicker for the Wickliffe football team.

"My dad played football and I thought it would be really cool to play football and it's been amazing so far," Logan said.

Logan is also a member of student council. She said time management is the key for her to handle her busy schedule.

And, during halftime, she plays saxophone in the band.

"I take off my helmet and shoulder pads. I grab my saxophone, go into the end zone and then I marched with the band in halftime,” said Molnar.

This is Logan's first year on the Blue Devils football team where she will be handling kickoffs and extra points.

"Ya know what-- the guys have really embraced the situation. They love having her around. They love when she makes a field goal and all that stuff and they are really positive about having her so they have really accepted her as a teammate," said Marce Porcello, Wickliffe head football coach.

Last Friday, Logan was attempting her first extra point ever for the Blue Devils and she took a late hit from Richmond Heights.

"Well I was about to kick it and they told me to keep my head down so I keep my head down. Next thing I noticed I was on the ground; everyone was standing above me, asking me if I was ok and so I stood up and I was like, 'ok, I just got hit; let's do it again," said Molnar.

Logan will be attending college next year and she said she will not be tackling any sports her freshman year because she wants to concentrate on her studies.
