In a viral video of a 6U football team in Texas, an abnormally large 6-year-old absolutely dominated his opponents, running through anyone who got in his way and delivering mean stiff-arms until he crossed into the end zone at the other end of the field.
Incredible genetics was my first thought.
His name is Aiden Smith and, at the age of 6, he is already 5 feet 1 and 130 pounds. His father, Kirk Smith, played quarterback and has thoroughly enjoyed watching all the attention his son has received.
Yup. He has got the genetics and the training. Alloy that with health and ambition and he could be asking for millions from sports teams in a decade.
