Update: Here’s how now 13-year-old Bunchie stole the Super Bowl.
A few colleges are ready to sign an upcoming football prospect with great speed, personality, and the perfect makeup.
Here’s the kicker: He’s only 10.
At such a young age, Maxwell “Bunchie” Young, already has some colleges trying to lock him down for their own programs. With an offer from Illinois and a school in the Pac-12, Bunchie’s future looks bright.
He splits time as running back, wide receiver, and even defensive back. In his last season, Bunchie scored 30 touchdowns, and registered 4 interceptions. Them some big numbers for a youngin.
Not only limited to football, Bunchie also competes in track and field. His performances have people calling him the fastest 10-year-old in the country. According to his film, it’s not even close.
On the 100-meter dash, Bunchie clocks in at 12.4. Four a fourth grader, thats wildly impressive.
What’s crazier is he can only get better from here. Bunchie’s trainer Mike Evans, owner of LacedFacts, trains over 150 of the nation’s most talented kids. He said,
“Bunchie is the fastest kid in the country, and his eye-coordination and work ethic is unmatched. He’s a kid that comes around once every 10 years.”
While you’d think that tons of schools would be trying to secure as many young athletes as possible, that’s not the case.
“A lot of these schools are not hip to it yet because you still have a lot of old-school coaches at programs. It’s the new wave that’s going to change things. It’s people who came from the computer era and the social media age that are going to change things. We’re the first to do what we’re doing where kids are getting official offers.”
With Bunchie being so young, he has plenty of time to improve his skills and enjoy his growing hype.
“When you see a player, you know… These kids aren’t going to be short. Genetically they have the size of pro athletes. The things they do right now, they’re already on high school level IQ wise.”
