Nine year-old Sam “Sweet Feet” Gordon is thankful to be able to do the stuff she does. What she does, is play football on a youth team in Utah where she’s racked up some ridiculous stats including 2000 yards rushing, 65 tackles and 35 touchdowns.

Sam’s highlight reel went viral on YouTube earlier this month quickly amassing over 2 million views before being taken down. It seems a very smart agent and/or publicist may have stepped in and she’s since been booked  on “Good Morning America” and “NFL Gameday.”  She also appeared on “SportsCenter” where she talked about being a football sensation, getting on a Wheaties Box (the first female football player to do so), being a role model for girls and her favorite sport. The Wheaties box is a real coup and Sam joins such sports superstars as Michael Phelps, Gabby Douglas,  Lindsey Vonn,  Misty May-Treanor and Shaun White.

Could she be any cuter?  Just the epitome of Pretty Tough and we’ll be watching her career closely. Good luck Sam!!
