(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)

    All I’m saying is if you put up the that girls team up against an average football team of the same age the boys would destroy them because boys are bigger faster and stronger on average but like good for her it’s just football is different from like soccer between boys and girls

    Ok so here’s the thing girls are strong coming from one herself however I believe in equality and all that stuff but genetically men are bigger and naturally have more muscle. Sure girls could train and can be stronger but if they train the same amount as a fellow male player the boy will be stronger. I believe girls should be able to play America’s most popular sport and that we can be as strong as some boys but normally guys will win. Not because women are weak but men are just genetically built with more muscle. Off the topic of what I was talking about she kinda contradicts herself I mean they said they are just as good but make their own league. However they still get hate but if they or more people would join the boys league they’d also get hate

    It is statisticly proven that girls has much less body mass and muscle mass than the boys and its meant to be that way, boys get lots of muscel and bigger bodies to do for example jobs that girls cant do like lift heavy stuff or work construction, its meant to be that way, never have i heard i guy say "I want a girl who is bigger and stronger than me" girls say that.
