Grade School Football Team Has 6-foot-7, 225 Pound Kid on Roster
Think back to your days on the 8thÂ grade football team. If youâre like us, you sat on the bench daydreaming about girls while the man-child that could already grow a beard ran sideline to sideline and crushed anyone in his path.
Now take those repressed memories of a massive post-puberty wrecking machine, put them on steroids, and youâll begin to grasp the reality of Isaiah Stokes. At 13, Isaiah is already a ridiculous 6-foot-7, tipping the scales at 225 pounds of pure junior varsity domination.
Surprisingly, the 8thÂ grader isnât the largest person in his own family. His brotherÂ Jarnell, 18, is a 6-foot-8, 270 pound forward on the University of Tennesseeâs basketball team. Its hard to believe that a Division I basketball player will soon find himself in the shadow of a brother that has yet to finish high school.
Isaiahâs dominating performances arenât limited to the gridiron. In fact, word on the street is that the younger Stokes brother is alreadyÂ drawing attentionÂ from college basketball recruiters, including his brotherâs alma mater over at Rocky Top.
We imagine that itâll be a bit harder for Isaiah to dominate when he isnât twice the size of everyone else on the court, but then again, heâs still got a lot of growing to do. Right now, there are probably about a dozen middle school running backs that are praying for an NBA or NFL team to sign Isaiah and spare them from an early demise.
If that doesnât work out, weâre sure Vince McMahon is already salivating over his WWE potential.
