Andy Reid: 13-year-old giant

Andy Reid was the biggest 13 year old in the history of mankind.

I might be a little late on this since I didn't see the broadcast live, but I just watched (in amazement) the clip that CBS showed of Reid participating in the Punt, Pass and Kick competition back in 1971.

It's posted below.

My question is this: Is it really possible that Reid was that much bigger than the rest of the 13 year olds? I remember having big kids in my class in the seventh grade, but nobody was that big.

Friend and loyal blog reader MC has a possible theory: Maybe Reid was the last competitor in his age group, and the kids behind him are from the younger age group.

Thoughts?

Thanks to The 700 Level for the clip.
