11-Year-Old Prodigy Stars in High School Basketball Team
Basketball prodigy Julian Newman is now the starting point guard for a varsity basketball team at Downey Christian in Orlando, Florida. And yes, he’s 4-foot-5 and 11-years-old.
Despite the pressures of his relatively smaller size, the fifth grader is unfazed, averaging 12.4 points, 11 assists, and 4.3 steals per game.
“He has a tremendous skill level,” Julian’s father who’s also his coach said in an interview. “He has moves that even NBA players don’t have. He does stuff that hasn’t been done before with the ball.”
