Samantha Gordon may be only 10 years old, but she became an internet sensation after a video of her playing football went viral, and now she is a published author.

Samantha and her father, Brent, came to the FOX 13 News studios Friday to talk about her children's book, which is titled: "Sweet Feet: Samantha Gordon's Winning Season."

Samantha said her advice to other young girls is to embrace new experiences.

"I would say that, don't be afraid to try new stuff, and it's not going to be really easy," she said.

Check out the video above for her interview. Samantha also helped Brett Benson with the weather forecast, and that video is below.
