Female linebacker inspires other young girls

Aminah Barrett is only one of the seven girls in the city of Houston that plays football with boys. She attends Twin Creeks Middle School.

The eighth grader receives solid A and B grades and has been playing since the fourth grade.

“I like playing linebacker,” Aminah told KMOV St Louis. “I like to hit people and be aggressive.” Aminah is also a running back.

When her teammate Colton Mangum saw a girl with them while they were getting their pads, he thought, “‘Oh, okay so this is different.’”
