Brandon Jackson is just 12 years old and already has the potential of doing great things in football. However, he is considerably bigger than all the other kids his age.
The youth player in the Kansas City area can’t find a helmet his size.
“People always tell me to play football,” Brandon Jackson said.
The 6-foot-2 and more than 300-pound needs a 2X helmet, which is adult-sized, and hard to find.
“I’m hoping he gets to play football because that’s what I know he’s good at and he should enjoy,” Delanda Jackson said on Monday. “His coaches are loving on him and telling him he’s doing really good.”
Luckily for the mom and the kid, a current football player in the league is reaching out to help.
Kansas City Chiefs offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. took to Twitter and offered to help the kid because he knows all too well about being a bigger kid at his age.
“Somebody send me his Coaches or Moms info so I can get my dog right! I been there before!”
