PHENOMenology: Bay area 11-year-old football superstar among nation's best

By

Raymond Price III is only 11, but he’s already achieving the kind of things that most football players only dream of.

As reported by the San Jose Mercury News, Price III will serve as the 49ers representative at the NFL’s Punt, Pass, and Kick competition championships in Seattle. He has compelling talent at all three positions, but it is through the air where Price really shines: Despite being in seventh grade, he can already throw a ball some 45 yards in the air.

Regardless of how Price performs at the Punt, Pass, and Kick Finals, he’s still already a certifiable baller. Price starred at quarterback for the pee wee Pop Warner football squad, and was his league’s sixth grade offensive player of the year. He was also Co-MVP of a recent Pee Wee football league.

Add in the experience Price earned as a member of the East Palo Alto Greyhounds, and he’s one of the most intruiging young athletes in California.
