    I've enjoyed each step of this youngster's journey.

    Don't get me wrong,I love the fact that she would do something different and play football. the only thing I have a problem with is everybody making a huge deal about a 9 year old girl dominating boys her age. In reality, it happens all the time. So far all the feminists that feel like they have to make their views known, (labeau), I was not saying that its a bad thing she plays football. All i was saying is it is not a big deal for a girl of that age to beat the boys of that age.

    Jealous much? She plays both sides of the ball. I raised my two daughters to not be second class citizens. I always told them when the were young, "I'm raising Queens, not handmaids."
    One has two masters by the age of 24 years of age, and is working on her Ph.D and teaches at two different Universities, while going to school.
    The other served a mission in Peru, and she was once the victim of an attempted kidnapping, but beat three of them off with her bag of book of mormons, and now is working on her masters.
    Raise your daughters how you want, and I'll raise mine to be independent strong American women.

    "Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."

    I don't live in a cave, but for whatever reason, this is the first I've heard of the story and I couldn't be more delighted. I have a young daughter and she is inspired. Thanks for the story.

    ok its great that she loves playing football, but to me it is not a big deal that as a 9 year old she dominated the boys her age. At 9 years old the girls are more developed and so it is not that impressive that she is as big and fast as the boys. In another few years or so, they all will have more than passed her up. Don't see why this is such a huge deal.

    Let's agree that if you dislike a story you should probably not waste your time reading it let alone commenting on it. Personally, I love the story of sweet feet (Sam).

    Great story about a great girl by all accounts. As for those of you that want the story to end [read downunder] why don't you just not read the stories that you dislike?
