New faces every year on america’s high school football fields. Here’s one that might catch your eye, next time you are at an Effingham County Rebels game. They have a new kicker on the roster. Her name is McKenzie Stewart. She’s not the featured kicker with the Rebels football team, but she is certainly trying to be. She’s been working just as hard as anyone else at getting better every day. Coach Buddy Holder is glad to have her on the team. “She kicked in middle school last year.” says Holder. “One of their girl soccer players. She did a great job in middle school. Last year she wanted to just be specifically soccer. We got her out here this year and she’s doing pretty good. She’s exciting to watch.”
The Rebels open their season August 22nd versus Liberty County.
