Jennifer Welter is the first woman to play professional football. The LA Times reports:
“36-year-old veteran of women’s pro football signed with the Indoor Football League’s Texas Revolution in January as a running back. Although she still hasn’t officially made the team, Welter saw her first action on the field Saturday night during a 64-30 win over the North Texas Crush.
The fact that she rushed for minus-one yard in three carries is beside the point. Welter is thought to be the first woman ever to have played in a men’s professional football league.”
