This 14-year-old girl is dominating her high school football field

One fierce football player is making headlines as the first-ever female quarterback of her high school’s football team. Brooke Liebsch, a 14-year-old from Missouri, tried other sports when she was younger, but fell in love with football and never looked back.

Liebsch joined a local youth league team about six years ago and has been honing her skills ever since. And while she may be the only girl on the field, she can totally handle any rough play that comes her way.

“I’m used to being hit really hard,” Liebsch told WDAF in Kansas City. “I don’t care if they hit me or not.”

She will not only be quarterback of Liberty North High’s freshman football team this fall, but she will also take on the role of field general, which is *major*.

On her helmet, there is a sticker that reads, “You've just been hit by a girl,” which shows that she’s not messing around. 

While football is known for being a male-dominated sport, it's superstars like Brooke that are opening up the field for girls across the country.

Turns out throwing like a girl is *not* a bad thing.


What do you think of Brooke's success? Would you ever play ball with the boys?
