When you say that deiton is not getting pushed around and you see the possibilities, I agree. The reason I think he is talented is because he can hit with these guys, get games of them, in other words compete and sometime in the future he could beat them. However, that does not constitute domination. There are kids out there who are playing up an age group and are having some decent results and even better than decent. Deiton's age group now is 14's (ok, will be in 3 weeks), so by playing 16's he is only playing up one age group. Many other kids are doing it and have more impressive results on a national level, but nobody is screaming domination.
