Here’s more on Sam from USA Today (video from Good Morning America below):
Imagine a mix of in their prime versions of Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson combined with The Waterboy’s Bobby Boucher and you’ll get an idea of the type of havoc young Sam Gordon wrought on her youth boys league this season. The youngster from the greater Salt Lake City area posted the following ridiculous stats – 1,911 rushing yards, 8.2 ypc and 25 touchdowns – this season in the Gremlin age group (mostly nine year olds) of the Ute Conference. According to her father Brent, who posted the video, there were 172 kids in her district who tried out for a Gremlin team. During tryouts, Sam tested the fastest in every single speed and agility drill. Gordon ended up starting at quarterback for her team, which only called running plays.
