On the eve of Thanksgiving and 3 football games tomorrow....

And not just a girl......but a little, itty, bitty girl!! She's small but outruns all her bigger boy opponents.

Her speed for her size is really incredible. She outruns them all!!

Must see video.....she's tough as hec too. Watch her get tackled and do the tackling as well halfway through video.

Who says girls can't play football?

Who indeed?

This is going on at the event center a mile or so from my house:

That is impressive. I coached all 3 of my kids in various sports. Every now and then, you come across a kid like this, either a boy or girl, that has incredible speed, strength or athletic ability at that age. Things even out though. It's rare for them to keep excelling as they get older. Everyone catches up.

In the case of this little girl, I'm sure she'll be an amazing standout in HS and possibly college...for girls. But in HS football, once boys catch up in physical maturity, they would cut her in half. Women just don't have the genes to get as big and fast as boys do. I would not let my girls play against boys as they get older. Too dangerous.

My oldest DD was a standout basketball player. At one of the club games she played at, there was this 6'1" girl that was built like a linebacker. Played low post and would score 30 points a game. Seemed to go unimposed during the tourny and looked invincible. Went on to play for UT. Truly impressive. Everyone says to me...she'd kick most boys azzes. I laughed at that. When you break it down. She could not run under 5.0 in the 40 nor could she get over 20 inches vertical leap. Could not bench over 200 lbs. An average HS basketball male would school her. She looked fantastic against skinny HS girls. And she deserved all those acolades. But she could not compete against men. It's just not goint to happen.

Remember Bobby Riggs against Billy Jean King back in the 70s". It was a load of dung. Sure, you can even things up a bit with a sport like tennis...but it still took a top female in her prime against an aging hasbeen male that was not in the same league as Jean was. Gave the feminists ammunition for decades to make their rediculous argument that men and women are physically the same. Right.....

Yeah, I hate to move anyone from what they love, but it would seem introducing this kid to Rugby or Lacrosse or some other really physical game were she would be likely to compete and if her physical gifts develop well dominate, would be nice

Unfortunately, it is hard to take a kid from what they love, and there is not often accounting for that. But there are Rugby scholarships out there, and I hope the parents try to channel her to close enough.

I want to point out that you're talking about the extreme of both sexes.

The odds are that this girl will be better against the boys in high-school football than I was. And I'm male. But I'm not and never was anywhere near that extreme - probably a bit over halfway to the other extreme actually.

There was an article written about this girl. In the football league tryouts, about 175 boys and she had to performed timed speeds drills and dashes; probably stuff like shuttling back and forth between cones and running 40-yd dashes and whatnot. She apparently was the fastest in every single drill out of the 175 who tried out. Pretty darn amazing given her size.

It will be interesting to see where this leads her as she gets older. She may have a love for football and contact sports, which is a problem for girls since the interest is low in that area. She won't have many options. From the sport's that are available where scholarship money can get her into a good school, it would serve her best to go with soccer, track & field or other sports where her blazing speed helps her out.

In most cases, girls peak early so the proof in all this will be if she continues to gain speed as she gets older. Being an athlete at almost every level myself and coaching youth sports for 30 years, I have lot's of examples of exeptional athletes that peaked early and were dissapointed as they grew.

I remember in JH, a girl in my class could run a 60 second quarter mile. That is blazing speed for a girl in JH. She would win her races by almost 100 yards. She could outrun all of us in the 100, 200 and 400. She could outrun all the HS girls. We hated it when the girls and boys would train together because she would beat us.

As we got into HS, her times improved only marginally. Her 4x400 meter relay team made it to state our senior year. Her best time was a 59 and enabled her to get a track scholarship at a D2 school. In comparison, I could barely break 70 seconds in JH in the 400. By my HS senior year, I ran a 51. 4 years later during my decathlon days, I ran a 48 flat and probably could have gotten that down to a low 47 with a little more time and training.

This girl, of whom I still have contact with, ended up quitting college track & field. There were girls that could run in the 55 range at her school and she could not compete with them. Despite her best efforts, she never broke 58 in the 400.
