I wish I was a little bit taller...

If you've ever belted out Skee-Lo, and really meant it, Julian Newman is here to show you that you can still be a baller.

Newman, an 11-year-old fifth grader from Orlando, Florida, stands at just 4'5" but is making a habit of embarassing players two feet taller and a several years older.

It would be impressive if he was playing varsity for his junior high, but Newman is playing for the high school varsity team at Downey Christian School. And he isn't just playing, he's dominating.

Here's the description on the YouTube video posted by "scoutsfocus" on December 19:

Julian Newman, a 4'5" 5th grade hoops phenom out of Downey Christian School in Orlando, Florida, has been tearing apart varsity opponents that are 6 and 7 years older than him. He leads the state of Florida in assists at 11.5 a game and is 19th in the nation in that category.

Last night, he scored 14 points, dished 8 assists and had 3 steals against Agape Christian which is one of the top private schools in the Orlando area. Two months ago, he scored 91 points in only 3 quarters of a middle school game which led to his move to varsity.
