VIDEO: Meet 9 Year Old Lisa Playing American Football In China

Although American football is literally in its infancy in China, it is growing at an explosive rate. The Great Stone Gridiron organization has seen massive growth in interest in the game and skyrocketing registration among children and young people.

Typical of this trend is young Lisa, who is enrolled in the GSG U9 Future League.  She is a young girl who is excelling in China at this boy’s game but as this video shows, her enthusiasm and athletic ability would be recognizable anywhere in the world.

The GSG currently has 6,000 kids enrolled in the program with that number set to jump. According to Polish coach and AFI correspondent Wojciech Andrzejczak, Chinese parents find American football’s strategy, work ethic, English environment and team building very appealing for their children.
