9-year-old girl outruns the boys, takes hits, and shines in football reel

I don’t love football, but I do love this football video!

Even next to her adorably pee-wee-sized opponents, Samantha “Sweet Feet” Gordon looks faster than a speeding bullet. Cute! Then, you see her take a couple hits. Bam! Ooh. Ouch.

Samantha Gordon of Utah also plays soccer, but she decided to try out for her brother’s football team after acing a few speed drills. Then, her dad put her reel up on YouTube… and the rest is cyber history in the making. Wheaties honored her with a cereal box (not for sale, sadly, at least not yet!) – and she’s the first female football star to earn this honor. Check out her adorable response on ESPN’s Sports Center

She’s now also my favorite football star – ever. (Joe M., I trust you’ll understand.)
