Students shout her name and wave signs of support for number 32. Three quarters pass and she still isn’t in the game. She waits, the nervous smile on her face mirroring the crowd’s anticipation. Midway through the fourth quarter, Coach Felton finally calls her over. “Alright Coach, I need to know: do I just run at them?” Chloe Soto said. Knowing one week is hardly enough to learn the intricate and tough sport of football, Coach Felton tells her to do her best. Soto walks to midfield to check in for the next play. As she and fellow sophomore Jada Harris cross the white line on Decatur’s artificial turf to enter the game, the crowd roars. “It was weird because we were all on the sidelines and then when we got on the playing field, everyone went crazy,” Soto said. “But it was only a two-foot difference.” This “two-foot difference” between the field and the sideline no longer separates Soto from the team as a passive observer; instead, she becomes one of the first two girls to play for the Decatur football team. Soto lines up as a linebacker for the subsequent play. The player opposite her on the North Atlanta offensive line hears Soto’s high-pitched voice, sees the makeup on her face and stands up.

The stadium erupts. Students jump, scream and chant. The Bulldogs reset on the 5 yard line with a touchdown in sight. The crowd grows silent as the ball is hiked, anticipation growing with every second. Then, frustration pours from the spectators and players. Fumble. McIntosh High School revs up for another offensive drive. When the fourth quarter ended with the final buzzer, Decatur was far from satisfied. From the dim lights of the score board, Decatur's defeat was illuminated. 28-3. The Bulldogs trudged off the field.
