Sam Gordon: My Pint-Sized Hero

Sam Gordon is my spirit animal. By this, I mean if I could have been anyone or anything when I was nine years old, it would have been her.

Allow me to back up a moment- Sam Gordon is the first female football player to be featured on the front of a Wheaties box. Oh, and she`s also nine years old.

With 1,911 rush yards, 35 touchdowns, and 65 tackles, the pint-sized player is the fastest runner in her youth football league and has earned the nickname "Sweet Feet" from her male counterparts.

She`s been on SportsCenter, Good Morning America, and the NFL Network, just to name a few. In an interview, she said, `One of my goals was...I wanted to prove that girls can play, it`s not just a boy`s sport.` When asked whether she thinks girls should be able to play in the NFL, she said: `I think they should, I dunno if they`d try out, but I think they should be able to.`

I could not agree with her more. Also she is my hero. What do you guys think? Is Same Gordon MVP-worthy?
