The game of football has been getting increasingly dangerous. Some high school boys have been so exhausted they’ve collapsed and died from numerous causes: concussions, dehydration, heart attack, etc. A parent must ask themselves the hard questions before sending their boy out on the field. But now that decision has to include little girls interested in the game.
In September, we reported that a Florida high school had just started Erin DiMeglio as their first female high school quarterback in the state’s history. Now, Salt Lake City Utah is being stunned by the fastest little tailback they’ve ever seen, nine-year-old Sam Gordon. It all started with her trying to keep up with her brothers, but now her brothers and older boys are trying to keep up with her…on the field.
She was just supposed to run some drills with her brothers, but when the coach saw “Sweet Feet” (taken from an episode of the Cosby show when Rudy played football) run the field, he had to get her in the game. She not only can play, she has a highlight reel put together by her dad to show prospective coaches.
When you see her feet, you won’t believe how fast she is. She can stick and move and can break, take, and give a tackle. She’s a powerhouse alright! Check her out! Read more here on her fantastic 25 touchdowns and extraordinarily quick feet. Unbelievable!
