Florida teen gets her chance to play quarterback

PLANTATION, Fla. (AP) - The third-string quarterback for South Plantation High School wears No. 13 as a tribute to Dan Marino, and her parents met at a Miami Dolphins game.

She also has a ponytail sticking out of her helmet.

Erin Dimeglio put up these stats on Friday night: No passes, no yards, no touchdowns. None of that matters, either. She's believed to be the first female to play quarterback for a Florida high school team, after taking two snaps - handing the ball off both times - in a 31-14 win over Nova High.

Her parents describe her as a "humble, regular kid." Humble, maybe. But her story is far from regular.
