  • Girl Power at ILMS
    Sophie Johnson’s first big football moment this season caused a fumble. In a scrimmage against Camden, No. 36 Sophie, the safety, blew the runner back and knocked the ball loose with her shoulder. Her team went wild. After the game, the Camden players were surprised the big hit came from an eighth-grade girl. “They were shocked. They were saying, ‘Oh my gosh, beaten up by a girl!’ They all shook my hand,” said Sophie, 12. “I don’t want people to underestimate me or not go as hard on me because I’m a girl.”
