Girl plays football, gets photo on Wheaties box
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.
Critical thinking challenge: Why would General Mills make a one-of-a-kind cereal box for Samantha? How does this box help General Mills?
Define these words: likeness, tenacious
