Sam Gordon took the internet by storm in November of 2012 when a highlight reel of her torching competition in little league football went viral. Juking and shedding tackles, Sam almost had a 2,000yd season, proving not only that young girls can hang with the boys in the sport, but that they could also excel.
Now entering high school, Sam has filed a Title IX lawsuit to try to force her local school and others in the county to create an all-girls league and allow her to continue to play with other girls who are also passionate about football. Sam has already proven that the desire is there: two years ago she helped start an all-girls rec league. 50 girls immediately started playing, and the number quickly grew to over 200. Like Sam, 105 of those girls will be eligible to play in high school this coming year.
