“God, Grades, Then Touchdowns”: 6th Grader Is Too Good At Football, So There’s A Special Rule For Him
September 30 / Dan Fogarty / SportsGrid
This is Demias Jimerson, an 11-year-old at Wilson Intermediate School in Arkansas. Demias is one of those kids who, when you watch him play football, seems to be at least three years older than everyone else on the field.
It's not because he's bigger -- Demias is the same size as the other 6th graders he plays with -- but he runs with the speed and vision of a high schooler. He scores almost every time he touches the ball, and during one game this year he had seven touchdowns.
