9-year-old girl beats the boys in tackle football
So her dad hardly blinked an eye when Sam wanted to go play football after her brother joined a local tackle league, Yahoo! Sports reports. One year later, she’s beating the boys at their own game. She’s become to league’s leading scorer, and her coach says that while she can take a tackle with the best of them, she’s also showing the play-following abilities of a college tailback.
While you can’t argue that Sam is great at the game, naysayers are starting to wonder how appropriate her inclusion on the roster really is. After all, this speedy grammar school student clocks in at just 60 pounds, and plays against boys who weigh more than twice that.
What do YOU think, babes? Should Sam be allowed to play with the boys?
