After playing defensive back for her high school team in Kentucky, Shelby Osborne is going to continue her football career in college. The Jeffersonville, Ind., native signed Wednesday with Campbellsville University, an NAIA school in Campbellsville, Kentucky. While most female college football players have been kickers, Osborne is going to play defensive back. She's not the first woman to play defense in college football, Joyce Muntari played linebacker at Monterey Peninsula and Contra Costa junior colleges in the mid-1990s, but while a female kicker is still pretty rare, a female defenisve player is even rarer. It's why her coach, Lonnie Oldham, warned her it would be a struggle to find a spot to play in college.
