Meet Brendan Adams. He is a 7-foot-4 wide receiver for Morgan Middle School in Ellensburg, Washington. You heard me, MID-DLE school. Brendan is 14 years old and is the tallest teenager in the world according to the Guinness Book of World Records. By age 5, he was 4-foot-5 and by age 11, he was 6-foot-7. Now, he is Morgan Middle’s go-to-guy in the redzone.
Watch the video of Brendan’s story over at Rivals High. It’s actually not as awesome as it sounds. It is a pretty sad story. He suffers with serious health problems, enlarged joints, unusual blood counts, and arthritis. But, he loves playing football and he is unstoppable on the two point conversion.
