Remember the name Julian Newman.
The fifth grader in Florida has recently made headlines for his insane skills on the hardwood, but he isn’t just breaking ankles in the junior-high schoolyard — he’s dominating high school varsity games.
“Julian Newman, a 4-foot-5 fifth-grade hoops phenom out of Downey Christian School in Orlando, Fla., has been tearing apart varsity opponents that are six and seven years older than him,” a YouTube video description reads. “He leads the state of Florida in assists at 11.5 a game and is 19th in the nation in that category.
“[On Tuesday] night, he scored 14 points, dished eight assists and had three steals against Agape Christian which is one of the top private schools in the Orlando area,” it adds. “Two months ago, he scored 91 points in only three quarters of a middle school game which led to his move to varsity.”
