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.

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.
