He wont play a college football game for five years but some of the top universities from across the States already want him on their team
EVERYTHING is bigger in the States.
But this guy takes that to another level.
Kiyaunta Goodwin or ‘Syrup’ as he’s more commonly know is 6ft 6in and 24 stone.
That’s roughly the same weight as a full-grown giant panda.
But he is not a giant panda he is a 13-year-old school boy from Louisville, Kentucky.
The middle-schooler looks like he could be lining up for an NFL team on Sundays in fact he’s already bigger than the average offensive line man in the league.
Instead he looks down on his peers that are a third of his weight and a foot smaller as he prepares to flatten them.
That’s exactly how he earned the nickname ‘Syrup.’
For his ability to roll over defenders with the pancake block.
Which as its name suggests is a block that flattens the defender like a pancake so the running back has a clear path to run through.
Goodwin has had American college football coaches flocking to the Aspirations Gym to check out the giant phenomenon.
The scholarship offers have started to come flooding in too, five years before he is due to step his massive size 18 feet on a college campus.
The first offer came from his home state school University of Kentucky and from there other big name colleges followed suit including University of Georgia, Oregon, Purdue, Wisconsin and Florida State.
But it’s not just his size that is impressive.
Chris Vaughn works at the Aspirations Gym where Goodwin trains and has described him as ‘freakishly athletic’ and said he moves his feet well for his size.
Size that will keep on growing as doctors have predicted the football sensation could grow to 7ft 6in.
So he might also be able to help on some of these college’s basketball teams too.
Something else that sets Goodwin apart from some other young kids with extraordinary potential is he has a plan B.
Syrup plans on studying engineering in college just in case his football career doesn’t turn out as big as he is.
