Samantha Gordon has had a busy year since her highlight video hit the web last November, and it doesn't look like her rise to stardom is about to end anytime soon. Not only was she offerred a trip to the Super Bowl, but the 9-year-old running back is also the freshest face of the NFL Evolution campaign.

The latest "Forever Football" commercial from the National Football League highlights the evolution of the game with a clip of Sam tearing through coverages from the same viral video that made her an internet sensation. The tagline "Forever Trailblazers" fades over Gordon as she trucks up the field blazing through defenders.

Not surprisingly, many on Twitter were delighted to see Sam being recognized again for dominating her all-boys football league.

As the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens battled for the right to lift the Lombardi Trophy, Super Bowl advertisers competed for another prize: your attention. Each time that CBS cut away from Super Bowl XLVII to pay the bills (or because the lights went out), another group of blockbuster commercials and movie trailers were unveiled (although many had been teased). At your Super Bowl party, were people paying closer attention during the game or the commercial breaks?

While memorable Super Bowl commercials like Apple's '1984' and Snickers' spot that featured Betty White will be remembered so many more are soon forgotten or, even worse, ridiculed as super fails. Will this ad make this year's best list? Is it controversial? Or, even worse, destined to be forgotten?
