UMBC 5’2 Guard Darnell Rogers Goes Viral

Basketball players come in all shapes and sizes, but usually, being tall is the norm.  While there have been some shorties throughout the years to play at a high level, it’s very rare to see a player under 6 feet, let alone under 5 foot 5.

Now there’s a new tiny star in college basketball. His name is Darnell Rogers, and he’s listed at 5 foot 2, 150lbs. 


He quickly went viral  after his game was on TV.

See all the fuss below:

Sometimes great things come in small packages. There’s something about a little person playing basketball that remains super entertaining.  It’s hard not to watch him go.

Thankful for small hoopers.
