MANDEVILLE, La – She’s only sixteen.

She’s a Lakeshore High sophomore with more than honors English on her schedule.

WGNO News with a Twist features reporter Wild Bill Wood wonder what a day in her life is like.

It’s busy.

Makes sense she’s one of Wild Bill’s Amazing Kids brought to you by your friends at the Keating Law Firm.

When she’s done with the week, at least she has Friday night to rest.

Well, not exactly.

She is on the football field.

It’s the field of dreams where Megan Gettys is number eighteen and a kicker for the Lakeshore Titans.

Three times a week, for about an hour , Megan’s in the weightroom with the guys.

Wild Bill asks the coach, “why did you want her on your football field?”

Coach Craig Jones says, “the accuracy she had with the kicks, something you obviously looking for in the kicking game and she’s earned her position just like the other 72 guys on the team.”

Megan was already a star on the school soccer team.

An athlete and a straight A student who gets the point.

Now she gets the extra points.
