Video: 9-year-old girl stars in boys tackle football league
The boy football players in a little league in Salt Lake City are bigger, stronger and older than little Sam Gordon, a 9-year-old girl football player, but none are better.
According to a story by Eric Adelson of Yahoo! Sports, Gordon, who weighs less than 60 pounds, began playing the male dominated sport at the ripe ole' age of eight as a way to spend more time with her older brother, Max.
Now, she spends all her time scoring touchdowns for her big brother's team. Poor Max will likely be known in the community as "Sam's brother" until he goes off to whichever college Sam "Sweet Feet" Gordon declines to play football for on scholarship.
Adelson writes about Gordon's nickname, "She earned the nickname "Sweet Feet" - a modern-day Rudy Huxtable - and a breathtaking viral video in which she looks so fast that you have to wonder if it's real."
The video he is referring to can be seen below or click here to watch.
Sweet Feet put up Kenjon Barner-like numbers on the ground this season, scoring 35 touchdowns, rushing for 1,911 yards and tallying 65 tackles on defense.
Poor, poor Sam's brother.
