Change comes in the most unexpected places. In Utah, it’s in the version of an energetic young lady, Sam Gordon. She plays tackle football in the boys league and absolutely dominates.
Last year, she totaled 32 touchdowns.
Her running style reminds me of former Bronco, Terrell Davis. Sweep left or right, and hit the hole hard. She also plays defensive back and does her part on the offensive line.
Check out her highlight video.
Girl got game. If she doesn’t inspire you, nobody will. In a sport rampant with machismo, kids like Sam Gordon, help bring some sense of balance. And it doesn’t end there.
Not only is she an incredible football player, but an activist.
Last year, her and her father, began the first all girls tackle football league in Utah. She should make any woman proud, and man. A kid like that at the age of 12, is on quite an amazing life trajectory.
