Toni Harris is making history.

Although other women have played football at the collegiate level - Shelby Osbourne signed as defensive back at Campbellsville University in 2014 - Harris is reported to be the first with a scholarship. She shot to fame earlier this month after starring in a Super Bowl commercial for Toyota, highlighting her journey playing football.

Toni Harris has made history as the first female football player to receive a full scholarship for a skill position after signing a letter of intent with Central Methodist University.

Harris has stated that her goal is to become the first female National Football League player.

"I've never been a big fan of assumptions", she says in the spot.

According to CNN affiliate KCBS/KCAL, Harris was diagnosed with ovarian cancer when she was 18.

The design approach for the back of the device remains unchanged as it tries to imitate the appearance of a point of shoot camera. Moreover, the upcoming handset P30 Pro will feature a teardrop design at the top and will have a triple camera setup at the rear.

"I had a tumor inside of my stomach", she said in 2017. Her coach at East LA College, Bobby Godinez, said her resiliency is notable.

"For them to believe in me and give me the chance, it's an honor", Harris told the Huffington Post.

The 5'7 164-pound safety is no stranger to competing against the odds. Her team went 4-6.

Calloway said the most important thing to him is providing an opportunity to those with talent and potential.

Harris reportedly chose Central Methodist over offers from Bethany College, Adams State University, Graceland University and Kentucky Christian University.
