Will Damon Harge be the Future Michael Jordan?

high school basketball playerDamon Harge is only a 12 years old 6th grade student with 5-foot-4 and weighs just 120 pounds.  A year after getting national attention for dominating any and all middle school comers — he averaged 35 points as a fifth grader playing against student athletes three years older than himself — Harge is now suiting up for Creedmor (N.C.) Christian Faith Center Academy, where he faces off against some of the top prep basketball programs in the county

“I looked him up and it’s hard not to be impressed watching his videos,” Christian Faith Center Academy coach Kendrick Williams told ESPN.com of his first exposure to Harge. “I wasn’t sure about how that would translate on the varsity level, but I was excited to find out. I just kept thinking ‘he’s only 12?'”

Harge is already leaving his impact across a large swath of the basketball portion of that world as it is. Williams, who once coached John Wall and is well acquainted with molding young phenoms, said that the sixth grader’s work ethic is what makes him stand out. The 12-year-old wakes up at 4:30 every morning and puts up an average of 6,500 shots per week. “With that high volume of shots the muscle memory is ridiculous,” Williams told ESPN.
