(upbeat music) – [Sam] Girls are just as
good as boys in anything. We know how to hit, we know how to run, and we can definitely play football. (girls chanting) – Go, go, go, go. – So, when I heard boys chanting, ‘Beat that girl, beat that girl.’ All it made me want to do
was beat them even better. (girls chanting) (upbeat music) – I’m Sam Gordon, I’m 14 years old, and I started the first
female tackle football league. I’ve been playing with the boys
since I was nine years old. In my very first season
I scored 35 touchdowns, about like 1900 yards. Sometimes after I beat them the parents would come out onto the field and grab their son’s
face mask and be like, ‘Don’t let a girl beat you.’ I wanted to start the girls
tackle football league after talking at a school assembly and asking the question, ‘How many girls here would
want to play tackle football?’ Almost every hand in the room went up. So, I got the idea, like, okay, if there’s this many at this one school, imagine how many there are in Utah, or just in the nation. So, I talked to my dad and he
talked with some other people. After a while we had the first season of the Utah Girls Tackle
Football League up and running. (whistle blowing) (man shouting) – Football is the last
frontier in girls sports. And if you think about it, girls can play on girls
teams in every sport that you can think of, except for the country’s
most popular sport. (people shouting) (whistle blowing) We limited participation to 50 girls, those spots filled up in less than a week. The following year we had a hundred girls, and then this season we’ve had over 200 girls who are playing. (people shouting) – [Sam] Every year we keep getting bigger, and bigger, and bigger. (girls chanting) It would be amazing for it
to go into high schools, colleges, and even its
own professional league. And that’s going to be
a tough goal to reach, but I am really ambitious, and
I feel like we could do it. With the girls, you could tell that everybody really wants to be there. And so, everybody is just super into it and always willing to learn. (upbeat music) And with the girls every
practice is just an awesome time. (upbeat music)

  1. I’m all for equality but girls simply can’t Be as athletic as guys because of there biology if male team played a female team the would probably get wrecked

  2. 0:04
    Um wrong. Women's world record 1 mile. 4:12.33. men's record 3:43
    100 meters 10.49
    Men's 9.58
    Women's marathon 2:15:25
    Men's 2:01:39.
    Men are stronger and faster sorry to hurt ur ego

  3. If you wanna play football with boy in JH and HS? Why not play with the boys grow and get stronger more naturally than boys

  4. Until highschool it’s fair once u hit there boys are just dominant and we kill wait for one of us to hit u you wouldn’t get up

  5. Why’s everything being so butthurt that there is a girls nfl team 😂 obviously it’s going to be different than boys physically but it’s still the same game. Just be happy for once that girls are getting the opportunity to do more

    And yes I’m expecting hate

  6. Think they can run, hit and tackle? See them versus a boys team and I have a feeling they will change their minds real fast.

  7. At 0:04 except for baseball stupid you guys hoes play softball make sure to where your face mask 😂 also who about boys 100,200,400,4×100,4×200,4×400 so don't tell me you can do what boys do

  8. "Girls are as good as boy" well literal science states that men are built to be way more athletic than females, but they can still be better then boys

  9. Im in a football team and i went against a girl she got popped by my teammate after that she was scared and stood at the back of qb she is a running back sooo thats my story

  10. If you wanna play tackle than why do you need your own league. And there are many sports that are integrated, like wrestling

  11. She didn’t score 35 touchdowns playing the boys because of her skill, yup you heard me. The only reason why is because those boys don’t want to hurt her soo, yeah no hate just spitting facts

  12. Ok bullshit there are boy and girl sports I like the idea but no girl should play in the NFL they will get hurt no because they aren’t strong enough it is so hard for a girl to get as strong as a guy feild hockey is a girl sport I think girls are better then guys a soccer and I am a boy

  13. "We can do what boys can do" okay first off no one is telling u,that u csnt if they are tackle them, but like girls on football isnt that rare so sure they made their own league cool in Louisiana they have their own girls lacrosse league but the gear is different with same rules so yippee

  14. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂…..Its hit city wen boys go against a girl yn dont forget dat😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🏈

  15. The reason why she scored 32 touchdowns is because the boys are scared to touch a girl som where inappropriate.Soo I think that girls should play against girls.iam not trying to be sexist ok.So my reason is the boys don't want to touch the girls inappropriately,because the boys can get in trouble for that.
