A football player has left social media users in a frenzy after his real age was revealed online – prompting dozens of users to insist there is ‘no way’ he is as young as he claims to be.
Jeremiah Johnson, from Fort Worth, Texas, won an MVP honours award at the Youth National Championships in Miami over the weekend.
However his achievement has been drastically overshadowed by the viral response to his age – which has left fans convinced that some trickery must be afoot.
After a picture of the young footballer sporting a mustache went viral on Twitter and Instagram, social media users were left stunned to learn how old Jeremiah actually is – begging the question: can anyone guess the young running back’s real age?
Not only did the photo of the running back show him holding his trophy, it also showed what appeared to be a tattoo on his right arm – sparking even more disbelief amongst users.
Users claimed there was ‘zero chance’ and ‘no way’ he wasn’t a grown man before adding that he looked like he ‘had a mortgage.’
The 12-year-old went viral after winning an award at the 12U MVP honors award at the Youth National Championships.
Others said he ‘couldn’t be 12 with a Steve Harvey mustache’, and added that he looked like he was from the hit movie ’21 Jump Street.’
One TikTok user posting under the name @hoodnews24 shared what appears to be a video from the Youth National Championships, in which Jeremiah can be seen holding his trophy – before going on to confirm his age to the stunned social media creator.
‘Hey man, I don’t know, how are you?’ the TikTok user asks Jeremiah, who simply responds: ’12.’
‘The boy is 12!’ @hoodnews24 tells his followers in surprise, before adding that he would be outraged if the young player doesn’t go straight to the NFL.
