A six-year-old boy is dedicating his days to becoming the best basketball player around and already has his heart set on the NBA. Jeremiah Barjolo Jr has been playing basketball since he was two-years-old, with his dad teaching him how to bounce a ball with a tennis ball.

The Barjolo family has a no-days-off policy when it comes to the sport. Come rain, snow or sunshine, basketball comes first! His dada Jeremiah Sr. was a basketball star in college, while mom Dorothy played tennis.

It all started in the kitchen of family’s home, where Sr. would train Jr. in dribbling by using tennis balls. Mom Dorothy says that every day, when Jr. comes back from school, he goes straight to basketball practise with his dad. Training starts at 5 p.m. and they don’t come home until 8 or 9 p.m. on most days.

Even Jr. little two-year-old sister is into sports. When the father and son duo go for practise, the mom usually brings her around as well, so that she can bounce a few tennis balls around. Jeremiah Sr. is actually a coach at his own basketball school, but this star pupil gets special attention. And it’s now wonder - the basketball prodigy already owns a collection of basketball trophies.
