A high school football contender from California has left fans jaw-dropping.
Tyler Parker, a sophomore at Santa Margarita High School, is 6ft 1 tall and weighs 297lbs – at just aged FOURTEEN.
Training footage of the teenage defender went viral, with stunned fans stunned by his massive physique.
Parker claims on his Hudl page that he can bench press 185 pounds and deadlift 415 pounds 25 times.
And he’s also blessed with superlative speed, clocking 4.9 seconds in the 40-meter dash.
All of this has naturally made him a target for D1 organizations, with Arizona Wildcats, Portland State, Incarnate Word and Virginia University of Lynchberg all making offers.
Parker has also been spotted by the likes of Ole Miss, Texas A&M and LSU.
And Ryan Vidales, a former University of Oregon recruiter, has certainly noticed.
Vidales wrote on Twitter: “Tyler Parker is a name we’ll be talking about for years to come.
“I can’t remember a kid coming out of Orange County when he was 14 with his combination of height, speed and athleticism.
“I can’t wait to see a game at Santa Margarita next season!”
Parker is heavier than NFL superstar Aaron Donald – despite weighing less than 200 kg HALF his age.
‘BLESSED TO RECEIVE MY FIRST OFFER’
The exciting DL talent is a summertime wrestler whose Twitter bio also boasts a 3.36 GPA.
And he has three more years to terrorize high school teams before he qualifies for college.
Active on social media, Parker recently tweeted, “14 YEAR OLD NOSE TACKLE 72 3/4 wingspan 297 lbs 6″0!
“You best believe I’m a DAWG.”
And in April of that year, he announced he’d received his first college offer.
Parker wrote, “Blessed to receive my first offer from the University of Arizona.”
Football fans have been wowed by the 14-year-old’s stunning physique, with some questioning his true age and others excited to see what the future holds.
One wrote: “Well my guy is 25 he’s lying.”
While one fan joked, “It’s a shame you all don’t know how to spell 41 smhhh.”
Another added: “He was 14 maybe 14 years ago.”
While one said: “The Incredible Hulk at the age of 14. Barring unforeseen reasons, whoever signs this kid should have a future superstar.”
