SALT LAKE CITY (November 21, 2012)—Samantha Gordon, a 9-year-old Utah girl who plays little-league football, can claim a Wheaties cereal box of her own.
Samantha, who goes by the nickname "Sweet Feet,” ran for more than 2,000 yards and scored 35 touchdowns in her just-completed season for the Gremlin Division of the Ute Conference, football for little leaguers.
The girl's performance went viral on YouTube, making her something of a sports celebrity.
She appeared Wednesday on "Good Morning America" with her likeness on a custom-made box of Wheaties.
General Mills Inc. told The Associated Press it's a one-of-a-kind box –
Samantha's image won't be used on Wheaties boxes sold in stores.
Her coach Chris Staib calls Samantha a tenacious young athlete.
