This Girl’s Flag Football Jukes Are Going Buzz On Social Media
Some young athletes are light years ahead of their competition. This can be said for all ages and genders in sports, from football to softball.
For young Kaleigh Patterson, her sport happens to be flag football. She doesn’t just play it, she absolutely dominates it. She can cut, juke and speed up defenders like Tyreek Hill, NFL wide receiver. She’s so sneaky it looks like all of her opponents are at the rink like they’re on skates.
And she’s tearing up the internet for these exact reasons.
Kaleigh Patterson shows off her skills
@dip_queen_.17 does @bbqchicken000 things. She is in a league of her own! #flagfootball #youthsports #womensports #girlsfootball #content creator #explore #Soccer #We make the world work #flagfootballlife #fyp #DoritosDareToBeBurned
Wearing her signature pigtails, Kaleigh just can’t be stopped. She plays in a New England flag football league, and it looks like she needs to move up to a tougher division.
In the clip above, which has accumulated nearly 900,000 views on TikTok, she dodges about six different defenders who had no chance of shooting her flags. She even finishes the touchdown by spinning the football, which will result in an NFL fine.
This isn’t the first time Kaleigh has gained notoriety on social media. In January 2022, she was on the receiving end of another touchdown in a video that garnered over four million views. While most comments were about the penny of a throw, I couldn’t help but notice its straight-line speed. She even hits the griddy dance to top it all off. It’s cold.
For anyone who’s ever played flag football, you probably know that evading defenders is the name of the game. It’s also incredibly difficult. Yet here is young Kaleigh Patterson making it look easy. All I know is she’s not going anywhere anytime soon. She’s going to be a problem for young flag players for years. Who knows, maybe she’ll end up in the NFL one day.
