How's the other kids' sizes compared to him?
We have this one really good boy at my daughter's academy. He has been really big and strong. One time when he checked in to play a 14s age group tourney, the TD wanted to card him. He believed he was 18 then, lol.
Yeah he is a lot bigger than his tennis friends. he is built like a football player for sure. Most of the other kids are around or under 5'. 85lbs?
