NEW ORLEANS -- She's not quite a prep player of the week, but 6-year-old running back Jayda Duplessis is blowing up the peewee football field.

Wearing Leonard Fournette's No. 5, Jayda scored twice for the McDonogh Tigers in a NORD Algiers league. She's the only girl on the team, and her coach even says she's the only girl in the league.

Jayda's father said she had two touchdowns and a fumble recovery against the Behrmann Park team on Sept. 20. In her first game, he said she had a fumble recovery that she brought back for a touchdown.

Her dad said this is Jayda's first year playing football.

Watch the video above to get a look at her moves!
