Usually this just means that girls who like to play sports (particularly traditional male sports) are {{Tomboy}}s who prefer to [[OneOfTheBoys play with the boys]]. Often she can put the JerkJock in his place by beating him at his own sport. Of course she can vary anywhere from a girl who's sweet and shy but puts her all into the game to one who has a dark personality and just wants to play football.

* Carol Danvers is a dedicated [[TheBeautifulGame football]] (soccer) player in ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' and very good at it, [[TheCaptain captaining]] her school team, specifically playing as a [[JackOfAllTrades box to box midfielder]], a position requiring a great deal of energy and skill. [[Creator/NimbusLlewelyn The author]] then elaborates that the specific comparison he was going for was [[TheCaptain Steven Gerrard]] of [[UsefulNotes/BritishFootyTeams Liverpool FC]], owing in part to their shared nickname of 'Captain Marvel' and similar dedication and, of course, RuleOfCool.

An admitted {{Tomboy}}, she not only manages her own sandlot baseball team, but ''loves'' to play football, even in the rain (possibly ''especially'' in the rain. There was a brief storyline where she started associating this with the feminist movement, but eventually, she started to just do it for fun.
