This is the amazing moment a 12-year-old soccer player destroys his rivals – after social media users questioned his age because of his mustache and tattoos.
Incredible footage shows Jeremiah Johnson of Fort Worth, Texas driving through the opposition defense before slamming into the receiver.
The star athlete is also seen sprinting through his rival’s line and scoring an impressive touchdown in the clip shared online.
It comes after he sparked a social media storm as users refused to believe the tattooed youngster – who also has a mustache – was really 12.
The new footage was shared by Johnson on his Twitter page under a message from NBA star Carmelo Anthony.
The basketball player had posted two pictures of him with Lebron James with the caption “brothers”.
Johnson responded to the message with a collage of some of his performances and two photos of him with trophies.
He also copied a tweet from Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams, who has yet to respond.
One of the clips showed Johnson running through another team’s defenses in what appeared to be a recent game.
He broke the ball before dodging and pushing his way through the crowd of players to score an impressive touchdown from around 50 yards out.
Meanwhile, another video he shared showed him running down the field as he harassed after a punt.
The opposing player catches the ball before it is bulldozed by Johnson, who leaps back and celebrates the hit.
He also attached two images to the post, one showing him with a trophy and the other of a social media user refusing to believe his age.
Jeremiah Johnson, from Fort Worth, Texas, left social media users in a frenzy after his age was revealed
The footballer went viral after a picture of him sporting a mustache and tattoos surfaced on social media and users claimed he looked like a “grown man”.
Johnson rose to fame yesterday when DailyMail.com shared the story of a 12-year-old football player who no one thought was so young.
The Texas native picked up an MVP honors award at the National Youth Championships in Miami this weekend, bolstering his already impressive credentials.
But her achievement was significantly overshadowed by the viral response to her age – which left fans convinced there must be a trickery going on.
After a photo of the young footballer sporting a mustache went viral on Twitter and Instagram, social media users were stunned to learn how old Jeremiah really is – asking the question: can anyone guess the real age of the young ball carrier?
While many netizens guessed between 20 and 35, Jeremiah is actually almost a decade younger.
His revelation caused a wave of disbelief online, where many were left in awe, insisting he couldn’t be that young.
Not only did the photo of the running back show him holding his trophy, it also showed off a tattoo on his right arm – prompting even more questions.
A TikTok user has shared a video of the football player confirming his age – and viewers were stunned when it was revealed, so can you guess how old the ball carrier is?
Despite the disbelief, a mother wrote that she remembered him from when he was younger and that he also had a mustache back then.
Although many users cannot believe that the boy is only 12 years old, others claim that he simply looks much older than he is. Jérémie is pictured at the age of 10
One user was so shocked by Jeremiah’s real age that he even suggested the photo had been airbrushed. Jeremiah pictured alongside his 10-year-old father
Users claimed there was ‘no chance’ he wasn’t a grown man, before adding that he looked like he had ‘a mortgage’.
Others said he “couldn’t be 12 with a Steve Harvey mustache”, and added that he looked like the one from the hit movie “21 Jump Street”.
The 12-year-old went viral after winning an award during the 12U MVP Honors Award at the Youth National Championships.
A TikTok user posting as @hoodnews24 shared what appears to be a video from the championships, in which Jeremiah can be seen holding his trophy – before confirming his age to the stunned social media creator.
‘Hey man, I don’t know, how old are you?’ the TikTok user asks Jeremiah, who simply replies, “12.”
‘The boy is 12!’ @hoodnews24 told his followers in surprise, before adding that he would be outraged if the youngster didn’t go straight to the NFL.
“Yes sir, boy, you are ready,” he added. “You deserve it, you deserve it.”
The video’s comments section was flooded with similar stunned reactions from TikTok users, with many joking that Jeremiah “might have graduated in 2012”, while insisting that he couldn’t be as young as he claimed.
“You get me wrong, he ran for 12 touchdowns,” another person added, while a third joked, “He was born in a leap year, he’s good.”
As social media users lose their minds over Jeremiah’s real age, his mother, Shana Evans, gushed about her ‘baby’ on Facebook.
But even the mother’s own friends can’t believe her son is 12, as one user commented: “He’s not a fucking baby.”
In the past, Nyeem Powell of Philadelphia, another 12-year-old football player, left fans in shock after his six-foot, 340-pound stature made him look older.
One user said, “Mustache says grown man, biceps says 12.”
Others demanded to see his birth certificate, saying it must be ‘fake’, while another joked that the only way his age could be legit is if he was ‘in years of dog”.
“He may only be 12, but that mustache says he’s been divorced at least twice,” one user commented.
Another was so shocked by Jeremiah’s real age that he suggested the photo had been airbrushed.
Despite his disbelief, a mother wrote that she remembered him when he was 10 and also had a mustache.
In the past, another 12-year-old football player left fans in shock after his six-foot, 340-pound stature tricked others into thinking he was older.
Philadelphia’s Nyeem Powell also towers over his teammates and has faced many years of bullying due to his size.
The average height and weight for a boy Jeremiah and Nyeem’s age is 4.5 feet to 5.3 feet and 66 to 130 pounds, according to Children’s Wisconsin.
