FLORHAM PARK, NJ (www.incnow.tv) - History was made in New Jersey and a first for women.

Lauren Silberman became the first woman to ever participate in an NFL tryout. Silberman, an MIT grad and former soccer player, tried out as a place-kicker. Unfortunately a nagging quadriceps injury resurfaced causing her to cut the tryout short.

Although she couldn’t push through the pain she says she is still grateful for the opportunity.
