It’s no secret that girls kick just as much butt as boys do at everything from school to sports to Street Fighter, but a 9-year-old named Samantha (Sam) Gordon is taking her youth football league to a whole new level. The pint sized powerhouse has taken Utah youth football by storm, becoming the starting quarterbackfor what was once an all-boys league–she came in first place in nearly every single speed and agility drill during tryouts!
The speedy Sam has a highlight reel that would make a lot of pros jealous–she boasts 35 touchdowns, 65 tackles, and 1,911 rushing yards–Sam’s dad posted a video showing her skills to YouTube and it’s gotten over 2 million hits just since Monday!
Despite it all, Sam’s pretty unfazed by her newfound fame. In an interview on Good Morning America, she simply said, “Most of the times it’s just really fun to be the one scoring the touchdowns rather than the boys.”
Despite being one of the best things youth football has ever seen, it’s not even Sam’s first love. Nope, she actually has a big spot in her heart for the other kind of football–soccer!
Watch her insane highlight reel here. Yes, she actually is running that fast.
