Girls are proving every day that they can hang with the boys. It’s true, anything they can do…well sometimes girls can do better. In the world of flag football, where pony-tailed girls make one-handed catches like Odell Beckham Jr., that is especially true.
Ava Hannosh may just be the next big female football player. Plenty of talented ladies have taken to the gridiron. A lot of them have been kickers who nail booming field goals and tackle dudes along their own sideline. Not many can say they’re out here pulling Randy Moss-like moves on the guys covering them.
Girl “Mosses” Boy, Splits Defenders For TD
Ava sets up out wide like Calvin Johnson in his prime. She’s clearly one of the taller players, so that makes a lot of sense.
Before we get to her catch, we have to talk about her fellow wide receivers. Why is everyone running the same exact go route? Is this a Hail Mary or something at the end of the game? I don’t know the intricacies of flag football, but that seemed odd.
The quarterback probably knows he’s going to Ava the whole time. He throws a deep pass down the sideline slightly under-thrown. No big deal. Ava goes up and gets it, ripping it out of her defender’s hands. She’s not finished. After hauling it in, she throws a nasty cut to split two guys and is off for the races to the end zone.
As for the boy, well, he probably cried all the way to the sideline. It turns out Ava knows she’s pretty good.
“THE NASTIEST MOSS YOU WILL EVER SEE. We lost yesterday to a team that has not won a game so that?s sad. I also sprained my clavicle or something like that and I was out of the game for almost the whole second half. It sucked. I got 2 TDs,” she wrote.
Ava doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Hopefully we see her playing for her high school eventually.
