I Have Found Our New Left Tackle

This kid is only like 8 years old, but he's already mastered the Jedi Mind Blocking technique.

You may or may not have seen the video of 8-year old Sam Gordon that's making the rounds on these here internets. Sam is a running back who also happens to be a girl, and she is leaving little 8-year old jock straps all over the field.

However, as anybody who knows football will tell you, this is a team sport. Somebody has to open those lanes for Sam, and watching the video one player stands out. I believe he's a wide receiver, but he can be groomed to be Illinois' left tackle of the future.

He's wearing number 10. Check out the block he throws in this play.

HE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE TO TOUCH THE DEFENDER. HE BLOCKS THEM WITH HIS FREAKING MIND.

Find out who he is and offer him, Beckman.

And we should probably offer Sam Morgan too.
