Sam Gordon scored 35 touchdowns and rushed for more than 1,900 yards.

Football star Sam Gordon has taken the Internet by storm, and now Gordon’s on a Wheatie’s box.

If you’re not familiar with Gordon, she’s a 9-year-old girl from Utah whose feats on the football field have been viewed nearly 2 million times on YouTube and other websites.

Playing in an league with mostly boys, the speedy Gordon has dominated the league as a running back. In her video, she’s seemingly unstoppable as she runs around and past her male competitors.

Such is her fame that she’s featured on a Wheaties box and was interviewed on ABC’s Good Morning America and ESPN’s SportsCenter.

According to the video, posted by her father, Sam finished the season with 232 carries, 1,911 yards rushing, 35 touchdowns and 65 tackles on defense.

“It’s just fun because all the boys are like “Whoa, it’s a girl,” she said on GMA.

She told ESPN’s Hannah Storm that the boys don’t tease her, “but I think sometimes they might get a little embarrassed.”

Check out the video of Sam running wild and her ESPN interview..

Hey, Dawgfan! Who says she should do that AGAINST an SEC defense?!!!?? Let’s see her get recruited and signed BY an SEC school…preferably GA. LOL

She may go to Tech on an academic scolly, but not on football……I saw the films……she is too good a player to even consider Tech!

Maybe we can hire her as a coach so that she can teach our running backs how to run the ball ? God knows our team sucks donkey balls on a yearly basis. She might be able to convice CPJ that the triple option is a terrible offensive scheme, but then again, CPJ is an awful coach.

It’s fun to watch. She’d better enjoy it, because it won’t last once she’s older. I dont’ know of any female football clubs. Maybe she’ll transistion over to soccer. At any rate, seeing her run past all those other players is a joy to watch…

Mike….they keep stats in every sport at every age. My Brother-in-law has been the score keeper for my nephew in baseball since he started playing at 5.

This Girl is great and fun as hell to watch.

She brings the WOOD (so to speak) when she makes tackles too.

Calm down folks, it’s UTAH! It’s not like they have much football talent out there. I could put together a team of 9 year old’s from Cobb or Gwinnett that would trash the All-State team from Utah.

And honey, no matter how many touchdowns you score, Daddy still would’ve rather had a son!

No matter how many TDs you scored in life you would cry lil a baby if you could get pregnant and have to give birth to a Bowling Ball.

Adorable and talented little girl, but Utah isn’t exactly known for the competitive quality of it’s youth football. Some of the defenders in that video seem to be unaware they are on a football field.

The Braves owners, Liberty, couldn’t pay her what she would demand. Don’t be silly now!
