A pint-size football player is getting national attention.

Nine-year-old Sam Gordon has some serious stats -- 35 touchdowns, nearly 2,000 rushing yards and 65 tackles.

Sam, by the way, is short for Samantha. She was doing so well against the boys, her dad loaded a compilation reel on YouTube.

82,000 hits later she's an online sensation.
