We have all heard the stories before of some lucky young high school basketball players being blessed with a height advantage that makes them a formidable opponent.
But Tacko Fall isn't your average High School giant.
Standing at 7' 5" tall, the Senegal native would dwarf even the tallest of players in the NBA.
Currently towering over opponents across the state of Florida, Tacko has only recently taken up the sport but, as the video shows, his significant physical attributes have seen him become a major player in the world of HS sports.
He has a wingspan of eight foot, wears the same size sneakers as Shaquille O'Neill (size 22), and weighs in at 250 pounds.
To put that all into perspective, the tallest player currently playing in the NBA is Oklahoma City Thunder's Hasheem Thabeet who stands at 7' 3", and Fall is widely believed to be the tallest high school player in the U.S. (maybe the world).
He has only taken to the court 22 times in his brief career but is proving a handful to deal with as would be expected.
Check out his highlight reel above, or via this link.
