9-Year-Old Football Star Sam Gordon Talks About Being a YouTube Sensation on 'Fox and Friends'

The video of nine-year-old Pee Wee football star Samantha Gordon running circles around her male counterparts went viral last week, and this morning, she joined Fox and Friends to talk about her amazing athletic ability.

Of the 172 children in the district, Sam beat everyone in speed and agility tests. She is now the starting quarterback for her local team in Salt Lake City.

"I just basically run as fast as I can and try to dodge the people," Sam said.

Sam's mother, Brooke Gordon, also joined the show and was very excited for her daughter. "It's amazing to watch her hold her own with them. It's definitely made me very interested in football and proud of her."

Finally, Sam weighed in on her new fame and said it's fun to have people watch her and enjoy what she does.
