Here's something to talk about over the watercooler: A 9-year-old girl who is tearing up youth football in the state.

Now with nearly 400,000 views as of Wednesday afternoon, the video is a season highlight reel for Sam Gordon, who played this last year in the Gremlins league in Salt Lake.

Reported by many news outlets including Yahoo!, Gordon's story is an intriguing one. She starred this season as the primary ball carrier for the team, racking up 1,911 yards, 25 TDs and 10 two-point conversions.

Check out the video. With cuts like that, who's questioning if a girl can play ball?
