In a rare opportunity, a girl from MacArthur High School will soon be playing both football and soccer in college.
Alyssa Accordino will play college sports at Kings College in Pennsylvania. She originally committed there to play soccer.
But after a great first season kicking for MacArthur's football team, the college wanted her on its football team too.
And she's decided she's up for the challenge.
"I'm the type of person where I know what I take on, I can handle," says Accordino. "Hopefully with that attitude and that mindset going forward, it'll definitely help me push through."
