It began Thursday when the 6-8, 360-pound lineman did only 14 reps of 225 pounds in the bench press. That was the worst among offensive linemen as UTEP's Will Hernandez did 37 reps.

At 16 years old, Brandon Marshall of Suffolk may be the tallest teen in the world.

"I was a normal size up until the age of nine," Marshall told SWNS.

Marshall explained he was about six feet tall by 13 years old, and grew rapidly since then. In the last year, he grew more than five inches.

"He does tend to struggle with roofs, ceilings, doorways — just everything normal size people take for granted," his mom, Lynn Quelch, said.

He became the tallest teen in the world when the former record holder, Broc Brown of the U.S., turned 20 years old last year. Brown is 7 feet, 8 inches tall.

Man jailed for murder of teen Leonne Weeks

  Man jailed for murder of teen Leonne Weeks A man has been sentenced to at least 24-and-a-half years in jail for the murder of 16-year-old Leonne Weeks in Rotherham. Shea Peter Heeley, 19, was jailed on Monday for the "brutal" killing, which Sheffield Crown Court heard he carried out "for no reason at all". The then 18-year-old lured Leonne to a secluded spot near Lordens Hill in the Dinnington area of Rotherham in January last year and stabbed her 28 times.Following his arrest, Heeley said he always knew he would kill someone and later told staff at a secure mental hospital that he had enjoyed it.

But, the title doesn't come cheap.

"Shoes have always been a problem because I will never be able to find them and they are really expensive," Marshall said of his size 17 feet.

Marshall now sleeps in a super king bed while awaiting his $1,400 custom one (made of two beds together to give him eight feet in length). In case he grows, his new bed will extend up to nine feet long.

Marshall also eats up to 8,000 calories a day in meals and snacks.

"I am constantly shopping to keep the fridge stocked," his mom said.

The title also has its perks. Thanks to his good grades and basketball talent, colleges with strong athletic programs have been keeping a close eye on him.

"All the good colleges that have good basketball academies attached to them are all fighting over him as to who will get him," his mom said.  "He absolutely loves it."

A 16 - year - old Brit is being hailed as the tallest teen in the world — standing at an incredible 7 feet and 4 inches . And to top it all, Brandon Marshall — who doctors say is still growing — has just fulfilled his sporting dream and been picked for the Welsh national basketball team.

In fact, he currently competes internationally in countries like Lithuania with the Welsh National Team.

His older brother and sister are an average height, and Marshall was tested for Marfan syndrome, a condition that causes people to be tall and thin, when he was young. However, he tested negative.

"All his tests results have come back inconclusive, which means he hasn't got it because it would be a definitive yes or no and so they are a bit baffled," his mom said. "But medically, everyday wise, he just gets on with it. He just has to bend through everything so he doesn't clonk his head."

Doctors are continuing to examine his genes to determine what causes his astronomical height.

In the meantime, Marshall does everything a normal teenager does, including studying for exams and hanging out with his peers.

He is nicknamed "Tiny" by his closest friends.


The Arsenal stars who are playing for their careers .
With hopes of a top four finish gone, Arsenal’s last remaining hope of playing Champions League football next season comes in the form of the Europa League. Like Manchester United last season, Arsenal will look to win the secondary European competition in order to qualify for the premiere one next year. So, with that being the case, the Gunners know that tonight’s game with AC Milan is the biggest of their season. Arsenal played really well in the San Siro to claim a 2-0 win, but they’ll know that they need to guard against complacency at home in order to advance to the quarter finals. There is a lot at stake for a lot of players tonight, many of whom could be playing for their futures. If the worst does happen and Arsenal lose, there’ll surely be an overhaul of the squad in the summer. We’ve taken a look at some of the Gunners who we think are playing for their Arsenal careers.
