Navy’s Lizzy Rullan scores casual backheel, goes back to being coolest player on field

Written by Jahmal Corner

Will someone explain to Navy’s Lizzy Rullan that scoring backheel goals are kind of a big deal? Tell her she has a license to celebrate a little; do a cartwheel, jump on a teammate’s back, run to the sidelines throw on one high heel and stroll around like it’s a cat walk.

All of those options were in play but instead Lizzy made this look as routine as putting on shin guards before a match (which is harder than it looks in my experience).

You won’t believe this: but this was actually the game-winning goal for Navy in their 3-2 victory over James Madison and was also the FIRST goal of Lizzy’s career. Let me repeat that: Lizzy scored the FIRST goal of her career on a game-winning backheel and she walked off like she was heading for biology class.

What’s cooler than being cool? Being Lizzy Rullan.
