Ohio teen fighting to play football
BALTIMORE, Ohio (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An Ohio teenager is fighting to play the sport she loves--football.
7th grader Makhaela Jenkins has played youth football in Baltimore, southeast of Columbus, for years.
But the Liberty Union-Thurston School District bans girls from participating in football games and contact drills.
So, she's not allowed on the middle school team.
Jenkins is asking the school board to change its policy, but the board says it's not violating any regulations with the ban.
