Hi, this is Sam. I heard that some of you were feeling bad that I hadn't posted anything in a while. I am excited to go to the Super Bowl! My video was nominated for an award at the Cartoon Network Hall of Game show so I get to go to that and meet Shaq the week after the Super Bowl. My video was nominated for most viral video. I am playing Jr. Jazz basketball and studying for the spelling bee. Thanks for letting everyone know about my video. I tell everyone that BYU is my favorite team!
This is Sam's dad. Sam wrote that before she went to school. I want to thank CB for giving Sam the opportunity to enjoy some amazing experiences. As I've said to every single reporter who I've talked to, I attribute her video going viral to CB: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865569893/Sam-Gordon-receives-invitation-to-Super-Bowl.html?pg=all
My belief is that Sam is continuing to get attention because people have fun with Sam so other programs want to invite her too. You can see how much fun she's having on these videos of Sam playing football with Abby Wambach and on the NFL Network:
I did see some comments on CB and other sites that provided inaccurate information about Sam, her team, and her coaches to "provide context" to the highlight video. I am more than happy to respond to any questions you have about Sam's tryouts, her team, her coaches, or any of the experiences Sam's had. It's been a really fun ride for Sam and our family and again, thank you CB for making it happen!
