When the Texas Revolution and the North Texas Crunch met in an Indoor Football League game over the weekend history was made: Jennifer Welter made history as the first female football player to play a contact position (non-kicker) in a men’s league.

For 10 years Welter had played linebacker for the Dallas Diamonds, which played in a women’s league. Welter plays running back for the Revolution, and was put into the game on three goal-line situations.

If you thought the defenders of the Crunch would take it easy on her, you were wrong:
