1. Surpising
I tend to think Anne Donovan of the Seatle Storm and the USA Women's Basketball team was in the same situation when she was this kids age. Donovan is 6ft 8in. However, before I saw the picture I thought the difference between the boys would be greater. These kids seem to be very tall for their ages. Another one of the LLs is 5ft 10in at the age of about 13. Is Durley interested in basketball?

3. Maybe he's been taking steroids?
Don't just automatically ASSUME that he's 16 or 17...

5. Probably lying about his age
I remember a few years ago wasn't there a kid who was like actually 16 years old playing in the world series.
