In her first year and first time playing football she amassed 35 touchdowns and nearly 2,000 yards. Yes you read that right, 35 TDs and 2,000 yards! She is faster, quicker, and more explosive than everybody in the league and she is a girl. Most of the time when people think of girls playing football, they think they are just the kicker. Not Sam! She single handily dominated her league!
At such a young age, it seems crazy to put a female out there with rough boys, especially in football. But Sam is not fazed by the contact and that is something her father noticed at a young age. “I started her out in soccer at 4 years old and we would play out in the yard,” Brent Gordon told Yahoo’s Eric Adelson. “And my son’s friends were pretty aggressive and rough. She could really handle a lot of the physical play. There were some games where she’d fall down and just keep going. She would get kicked in the face, kicked in the gut and just keep going.”
We saw how women can play football with the Lingerie League, but now they are actually playing with men. It may seem unfair because men are bigger and stronger, but as you can see in the video, the females are getting tougher and faster. We can’t say girls can’t play football any more. Say hello to the Little Giants on steroids
Now Gordon is an internet sensation and quite possibly may become a college prospect if she continues to play. With over 2 million views on YouTube so far, this girl has become the next big thing in sports!
