While she certainly deserves props for being yet another amazing addition to the #BuiltByGirls movement, Reilly doesn't really look at her kicking position on the school's varsity football team as a big deal. For her, it's as simple as playing a sport she enjoys.
"It hasn't hit me that much that I'm like, 'Oh yeah, I'm a girl on a football team,'" Reilly told CBS. "It's just like, 'Oh, I'm a kicker on a football team.' I just happen to be a girl."
Reilly doesn't necessarily want the spotlight to be on her gender, but her mother Karen acknowledges that the teen's record-setting feat represents a continuing turn in the tide for women's equality.
"Maybe things are changing somewhat," she said. "You know it's easier for women to lean in and come and do things that they normally wouldn't have been able to do."
Yas, Reilly. We're looking forward to seeing you continue to kick a** on and off the field.
