WATCH: Ex-Gunn Poloist Makes History as Female Football Coach

San Diego High School made local prep history by hiring Knengi Martin to become the first ever female high school football coach in the section, and possibly the only one heading a varsity program in the US. Martin is a former water polo player from Gunn High School in Palo Alto, CA where she also played basketball, hockey, and football. She was San Diego High School’s JV head coach and a professional athlete with the San Diego Surge when she was promoted to the head coaching position.

Coach Martin shares some observations about her historic rise with KUSI TV.
