5th Grader Playing Varsity??

HSS_logoThis story came across Twitter today from USA Today High School Sports website. It shares of a 5th grade boy from Florida that is playing on the varsity team.

I like this quote from the article: “If Jamie (his dad who is the coach) keeps his job, and Julian, who reportedly scored 91 points in three-quarters against middle school competition, doesn’t find a loophole that allows him to play in the NBA when he’s in 9th grade, the father and son duo could share the same high school court for eight seasons. That’s a crazy thought, not unlike a 4-foot-5 fifth-grader playing high school basketball.”

You can read the entire story on the USA Today High School Sports site. Below is the video that shows young Julian in action.
