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.’”
