This little girl is dominating her youth football league against the boys (video)

Nov 6, 2012, 2:15 PM EDT


All the boys are chasing Sam Gordon as she chases her dreams. The only bad thing about the video below is a pretty annoying soundtrack — otherwise it’s a fun romp for a little girl running rings around the boys in a youth football game. According to the YouTube description, Sam has 35 touchdowns and 1,911 yards, averaging 8.2 yards per carry. Not sure if that’s over a career or a season, but as she looks about eight years old, it can’t have been a very long career so far.

This comes to us via The Big Lead, and we’re not sure where Sam is from. But we’ll post an update if it becomes available.

    Somebody show this to Jerry Jones, we need a decent RB.

    She’s even got the “game face” down!

    I don’t know, Rick. The soundtrack kind of rocks. It’s no Korean dance music, that’s for sure.

    Not to rain on her parade, but that’s 233 carries. How many games has she played? And this is PeeWee, probably 8 minute quarters. They must have played 18 games?

    Girls mature faster than boys.

    Anyone leaving a negative comment needs to be sent to the showers. That kid is a phenomenal player.

    Holy Moly, she’s a little burner. I put one of those runs in pads, at an angle, at about a 6-second 40. I’m drafting her to my fantasy football team.

      Hahaha – I’ve watched this video 3 times today. Best highlight video on the Youtubes. Look at her blow through stiff arms! Just noticed she wears #6; little Bubby Brister fan? I’m sure we’ll see more about her in the future.

    That was impressive. Little Barry Sanders out there.

    The nice football field (with the turf and the big logo at midfield) is Wildcats Stadium in Woods Cross, Utah.
