Grade School Football Team Has 6-foot-7, 225 Pound Kid on Roster
Think back to your days on the 8th grade football team. If you’re 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 you’ll 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 8th grader isn’t the largest person in his own family. His brother Jarnell, 18, is a 6-foot-8, 270 pound forward on the University of Tennessee’s 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.
Isaiah’s dominating performances aren’t limited to the gridiron. In fact, word on the street is that the younger Stokes brother is already drawing attention from college basketball recruiters, including his brother’s alma mater over at Rocky Top.
We imagine that it’ll be a bit harder for Isaiah to dominate when he isn’t twice the size of everyone else on the court, but then again, he’s 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 doesn’t work out, we’re sure Vince McMahon is already salivating over his WWE potential.
