Girl Football Sensation Sam Gordon Returns to the Football Field - Check Out Her Awesome Moves!

As she prepped for her return to the field, Sam Gordon was busy kicking major butt at football camp.

Ahead of her school's July 28 team tryouts, the 11-year-old female football sensation headed to University of Michigan's youth football camp to amp up her skills, with her yellow cleats (in honor of the university) and a ton of confidence in tow.

"The kids at this camp are sixth, seventh and eighth graders," the incoming sixth grade quarterback said in a video clip. "I'm going into eighth grade, so most of the kids in this camp are bigger than me." And it didn't matter one bit.

In the video, Sam goes head to head with nothing but boys, playing tug a war, running the 40-yard-dash and other drills, playing touch football and brushing up on her training as a runningback. And she kills it.

Not only is Sam a force to be reckoned with during the drills, it's tough for anyone to catch up with her during team play as she shows off her super fast running skills, dipping and dashing past the guys on the field. In a nutshell, she's pretty awesome.

Standing at 4-foot-2, 70 pounds, Sam is set to return to field this season to play youth tackle football, with her dad Brent Gordon telling the Huffington Post, "She is super excited to play."

Sam rose to fame back in 2012 when Brent posted a highlight reel of her football skills when she was just a fourth grader. Since then, she has landed the cover of a Wheaties Box and nabbed several TV appearances.

We can't wait to see what she does this season.
