Shelby Osborne, a Jeffersonville, Indiana native who played defensive back for her  high school football team, has signed on to play NAIA collegiate football this fall. 

Osborne committed this week to play football at Campbellsville University in Taylor County. It’s believed she’ll be the first female to play on the defensive side of the ball at the college level since mid-1990s when Joyce Muntari played linebacker for two junior colleges.
