Transcript for 9-Year-Old Girl a Football Phenom
Here's "the play of the day." It's not a "play of the day." It's a player of the day. Take a look. 9 years old, but only just begun. That comet blasting down the field is 9-year-old sam gordon. A pint-sized football player from salt lake city, with numbers most would envy. 35 touchdowns, nearly 2,000 rushing yards and 65 tackles. Oh, and did we mention that it's sam's first season. Or that sam, well, sam is short for samantha. All of the boys are, like, well, it's a girl. Reporter: On monday night, sam's dad uploaded this compilation of her highlights, playing in salt lake city's gremlin league to youtube. By the next morning, nearly 500,000 people had seen it. I thought it was impressive. And it appears other people enjoy watching her, as well. Reporter: So many are marveling at her speed and skill. Not because she's a girl playing in a male-dominated sport. But because she's completely dominating all of the boys, something that doesn't seem to bother her teammates. Hut. She's really good. She's fast. She's made a lot of touchdowns. So, we made it to the playoffs. Reporter: It turns out sam, well, has other ambitions. One of the things I want to do when I grow up is play on the professional soccer team. Think about that. It's not even her best sport. We're so happy to have sam and her father, brad, with us, via skype, from south jordan, utah. Sam, I have to tell you. I've not seen many 9-year-old football players better than you. What's it like? We saw the moves, took it for 65 yards and the touchdown. What's it like when you're out there playing against the boys? It's just, like, everyone asks if I'm nervous. But most of the time, it's really fun. I'd rather be scoring the uchdown than the boys. You're helping me out with my daughter at home. Brent, when did you first see that she had the talents that we're now seeing on our television set? Well, I knew that when she was a little girl. She was about 3 or 4 years old, we would play soccer out in the yard, with all the -- my older son, who is a few years older than her. And they'd try to be a little rough with her and push her down. And even intentionally trying to kick the ball at her. And she wouldn't be fazed and keep getting up. I had an idea that she had an aggressive mentality back then. She certainly does. We know you want to be a soccer player. We have a surprise for you. We have a great soccer player to say hello. You know who carli lloyd is, sam? Carli, are you with us? Yes, I'm here. Hi, sam. Hi. Pretty impressed with the football video. Incredible. Thanks. You're leaning more towards soccer, you think? Yeah. That's awesome. Well, keep working hard and keep dreaming. I don't know. You look like a pretty good football player, to me.
