Awesome Ladies #3: Sam Gordon

Sam Gordon

In honor of Super Bowl sunday, I thought it would be appropriate to highlight this badass little girl who’s kicking major butt on the football field.

Gordon became a Youtube sensation in November of this year with her football highlight reel. She’s not only competing alongside the boys, she’s legitimately schooling most of them. According to the video, she notched 1,911 yards on 8.2 yards per carry and scored 35 touchdowns, and when she switched to defense she completed 65 tackles.

She was chosen as the first female football player to appear on the Wheaties box because “she’s an inspiration to other young girls and aspiring athletes around the country,” according to ABC news.

Although she’s amazing on the football field, soccer was her first love. After seeing her highlight reel, Abby Wambach invited her to a practice with her and the rest of the US Women’s National Soccer Team.

To really appreciate her talents, you have to see her in action:

This girl’s got wheels! I have no doubt she’ll find success in whatever sport she chooses to pursue.
