7-foot-7 Freshman Makes Varsity Basketball Debut (Video)


It was back in 2014 when Romanian basketball player Robert Bobroczky set social media on fire with how tall he was and just how painful it looked watching him run up and down the court as a 7-foot-4, 13-year-old.

He’s now 7-foot-7 and he made his debut at an American high school for SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio.

“It felt nice to play finally,” he told Lynden Ostrander of MaxPreps.com. “The game was as fast as I expected and I still need to work a lot. I just have to be patient and work, and the results will come.”


Bobroczky played in limited minutes and his squad lost to First Love Christian Academy of Washington, Pa.
