SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A 9-year-old Utah girl who plays little-league football can claim a Wheaties cereal box.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports ( http://bit.ly/Umy9Gb) that Samantha Gordon of Herriman goes by the nickname "Sweet Feet."
Gordon ran for more than 2,000 yards and scored 35 touchdowns in a just-completed season for the Gremlin Division of the Ute Conference _ football for little leaguers.
The girl's performance has gone 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. tells 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 the running back a tenacious young athlete.
