FAIRFAX, Va. — A 13-year-old girl who plays quarterback for a youth league in Fairfax, Virginia, received a Twitter shoutout from the NFL.

Commissioner Roger Goddell’s verified Twitter account posted a tweet Thursday congratulating Karlie Harman on being named player of the year by Dulles South Youth Sports.

Harman, an eighth-grader, was recently named quarterback for Dulles South Thunder in the Fairfax County Youth Football League.

Her coach, Bob Thomas, told The Washington Post in March that Karlie was one of the greatest athletes he’s ever coached.
