Tami Maida was the groundbreaking junior varsity quarterback at Philomath High School in Philomath, Oregon.[1] In 1981, she became the first known quarterback to also become homecoming princess.[2] After a year at Philomath, she and her family moved back to their hometown of Prince George, British Columbia.[3]

Her story was the basis of the CBS movie Quarterback Princess, with Helen Hunt as Maida.[4]
