At that age, the sex of the child doesn't make a difference*. Boys don't become statistically stronger/faster/better jumpers than girls until they hit puberty.

Solid fundamentals. Quick acceleration. Great vision. Keeps feet churning after a hit.

That highlight reel won't be complete until she does an option fake and gets tackled when the d thinks its a keeper allowing another kid to score.

Pretty much this. I'm glad girls want to play football, but call me when one is a starting QB for a Div. 1 school.

Oh wait, that'll never happen.

Zing!

Just watched the video- I had assumed it was at least a high school QB, but alas, it's peewee, and she just happens to be fast. I wouldn't call that "schooling the boys at their own game".

Forget Div-I schools - even male athletes from NAIA schools probably match up fine against top female athletes. I remember reading somewhere that the average male has a vertical leap that is about as high as the 99th percentile of female vertical leaps, and that wasn't even just looking at athletes.

Based on having a 9 y/o girl and knowing a lot of boys and girls that age, I would say this is not true. The adorable little QB is an outlier. But the gap gets a lot bigger after puberty, of course.

She's taking the snap, that position is typically called the quarterback in modern football.

They look like they're running a type of single wing.

Traditionally, you'd call the player receiving the snap in a single wing the tailback but most teams these days just call him (or in this case, her) the quarterback.

I was just reading that, since I was curious, based on this story.

That's why I said I'd be impressed if a girl started at QB for a Div. 1 school. Because that would be impressive.

She ended up playing quarterback on a squad that only called running plays.

Because I bet she throws like a girl, amirite?

Girls can easily start puberty at 9. Guys aren't going to start until the end of fifth grade at the earliest.

I keep track of my own stats when I'm playing casual pick-up sports with friends- we play just about every week, so it almost makes sense. I do this for no other reason than to track my own performance.

Saw the ponytail and immediately thought - I bet she gets pulled down by that. Sure enough, 3:24 mark and there it is.

I used to teach swimming, mostly ages 4-10, and the girls were always better - more coordinated, more focused on learning. I had three girls swimming butterfly at age 4.

Girls in sports is great. Too bad once the testosterone kicks in, things get unfair pretty quick except for a handful of female athletes.

SmellsLikePoo: Six posts so far and nobody pointing out that she isn't a QB... she is a RB


I might be wrong, but I think QB is a description of where a person lines up. In this case, it's directly behind the offensive line. RB is a description of someone's role and a slightly more general description of where they line up: they run the ball, and they are somewhere behind the offensive line. By definition, a QB, FB, and Tailback can all be a RB. A QB cannot be a Tailback or a FB because those are descriptions of where they line up and not descriptions of their jobs. There are traditional roles we assume when we hear QB and RB, but they are not necessarily mutually exclusive in the way that QB and FB are.

Why Women Are Weak

"women are more prone to "overuse" injury. In some sports (like basketball) women have ten times the number of certain types of injuries (knees) as men."

"The basic problem is that less muscle mass and lower bone density puts 39 percent more stress on women during vigorous physical training. Research found that some of these injuries could be greatly reduced if the physical training for women was done over a six month period, rather than the standard three month course men and women used. But the injury rates will probably always be higher because of the fundamental gender differences".

She looks like a kid out there just having fun...

And that's great. When I was in Little League two of our best players were girls. We didn't think anything of it, since it was the '70s and it seems like there was more common sense in the world back then. Nobody called attention to it and nobody cared. They were on the team because they were the only girls who wanted to play fast-pitch, versus softball.

They eventually had to quit because of the guys doing everything better once puberty set in, but we won a lot of games with them until then.

According to this article puberty for boys begins at 10 -- age 9 for A-As. (Imagine how big the gap might be if race wasn't a social construct!) Of course girls do start even earlier, you're right.

http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2012/10/20/boys_hitting_pubert y _sooner_according_to_new_study.html

The trend was most pronounced in African-American boys, who start to develop the early signs of puberty, defined by genital enlargement, at 9.1 years. For Hispanic boys, the average is 10 years, and for white boys, 10.1 years, according to the study published online Saturday in the journal Pediatrics.

Traditionally, you'd call the player receiving the snap in a single wing the tailback but most teams these days just call him (or in this case, her) the quarterback.


As I understand it, back when the single wing was the thing, the quarterback was closest to the line (hence quarter-back), the halfback was somewhat further back (hence half-back) and the fullback was all the way back beside the tailback (hence full-back). And the QB called the signals, though he rarely got the ball.

This. Even in Little Giants, it isn't far fetched that Icebox would be as good as (or better than) the boys.

Once they hit middle school, however, it changes pretty quickly. Testosterone makes a huge difference.

Boys really aren't starting to hit puberty that people would notice until 6th or 7th grade. Girls tend to tower over them before that. That's how it was when I was that age 15 years ago
