Eleven Year Old Basketball Prodigy Stands 4′ 5″ and Plays Against High Schoolers

As a society, prodigies fascinate us.  Whether it’s music, academics, or sports, we are intrigued by individuals who perform at a level beyond their years.

Add eleven year old Julian Newman to the list.  Standing only 4’5,” Newman plays for a high school in his hometown of Orlando, Florida.

According to the description posted on his YouTube video that has gone viral:

Julian Newman, a 4’5″ 5th grade hoops phenom out of Downey Christian School in Orlando, Florida, has been tearing apart varsity opponents that are 6 and 7 years older than him. He leads the state of Florida in assists at 11.5 a game and is 19th in the nation in that category.

Last night, he scored 14 points, dished 8 assists and had 3 steals against Agape Christian which is one of the top private schools in the Orlando area. Two months ago, he scored 91 points in only 3 quarters of a middle school game which led to his move to varsity.
