Towering 7’1” Teen Dreams Of Sporting Stardom: BORN DIFFERENT
TOWERING over his teammates at 7ft 1in tall, 17-year-old Brave Williams is hoping his height can help propel him to sporting stardom. The 400lb man mountain, a senior at Lake Shore High School in Angola, New York, is already a highly-regarded member of his high school basketball and American football teams. Brave’s growth spurt started early - he was 5ft 3in tall by age five and had reached 6ft 5in by his tenth birthday. Praised by friends and family as a gentle giant, the gigantic teen now lives on the Cattaraugus Reservation in the Seneca Nation of Indians and is looking to catch the eye of scouts and win an athletic scholarship.
