girls football pioneer Sam Gordon poses with St. Mark High School
students who presented her with a football during a visit to the
Manotick school on Thursday, June 13. The pint-sized Gordon, from Salt
Lake City, is in a court battle to have high schools in her area to
permit girls to play football. She is also an elite soccer player. When
Gordon was nine, she scored 25 touchdowns in one season playing against
males, some of whom were twice her weight. A highlight video from that
season had more than five million views within a week. Gordon has been
on a Wheaties box, and she appeared in the NFL 100th anniversary
commercial during Super Bowl LII in February. She is also featured in
the Nike “Dream Crazier” ad celebrating women in sport. In the spring,
St. Mark became the first high school in Canada to host a girls varsity
football game. The school is trying to grow girls football to the point
where there can be a National Capital girls high school football league.
