Watch This 11-Year-Old 5th-Grade Girl Dunk During a Game (Video)
Yeah you heard me. You are about to see a 5th-grade girl dunk a basketball.
Her name is Ashlyn Watkins, she lives in Columbia, South Carolina, and she plays ball in the East Columbia Youth Basketball League.
Obviously, the first two questions that pop into your head are: (1) how tall is she, and (2) was it a regulation rim? And the answers are (1) 6’1″ and (2) no. The dunk came in a game played with nine-foot rims.
But this is still ridiculous. I’m 6’2″ and I could maybe dunk on nine-foot rims. But, unlike me, Ashlyn Watkins is not a grown man. SHE’S AN 11-YEAR-OLD GIRL. And she throws down a two-handed, in-game dunk like it’s nothing. According to MaxPreps, Ashlyn can already grab 10-foot rims. By next year, at the age of 12 and the height of who-knows-what, she will be the youngest girl to ever dunk a basketball on a regulation rim.

Ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous.
