Girl kicked off football team

PHILADELPHIA. -- There is backlash in the Philadelphia Archdiocese after it decided to kick out a player in the Catholic youth organization.

There is an 11-year-old girl who has been playing youth football for several years but the Archdiocese says this will be her last. They're enforcing a boys-only policy next year.

"If I feel I want to stop, I will just stop, but right now I just want to keep going if I can," said Caroline Pla.

The diocese says it will review the boys only policy but say it's in place for the safety of the kids.
