The is the astonishing moment a 12-year-old football player destroys his rivals – after social media users cast doubt on his age due to his moustache and tattoos.
Incredible footage shows Jeremiah Johnson from Fort Worth, Texas, blitz through the opposition’s defense before slamming into the receiver.
The star athlete is also seen sprinting through his rival’s line and scoring an impressive touchdown in the clip shared online.
It comes after he whipped up a storm on social media as users refused to believed the tattooed youngster – who also has a moustache – was really 12.
The new footage was shared by Johnson on his Twitter page under a post by NBA star Carmelo Anthony.
The basketball player had posted two shots of him with Lebron James with the caption ‘brothers’.
Johnson replied to the post with a collage of some of his performances and two pictures of him with trophies.
He also cc’d into the tweet Las Vegas Raiders’ wide receiver Davante Adams, who has yet to reply.
One of the clips showed Johnson plowing through the defenses of another team during what appeared to be a recent game.
He is snapped the ball before dodging and weaving his way through the crowd of players to score an impressive touchdown for around 50 yards.
Meanwhile another video he shared showed him race down the field as he hared after a punt.
The opposition player catches the ball before being bulldozed by Johnson, who leaps back up and celebrates the hit.
He also attached two images to the post, one showing him with a trophy and another of a social media user refusing to believe his age.
Jeremiah Johnson, from Fort Worth, Texas, left social media users in a frenzy after his age was revealed
The football player went viral after a photo of him sporting a mustache and tattoos surfaced on social media and users claimed he looked like a ‘grown man’
Johnson rocketed to fame yesterday when DailyMail.com shared the story of a 12-year-old football player who no one believed was that young.
The Texas native won an MVP honors award at the Youth National Championships in Miami over the weekend, bolstering his already impressive credentials.
But his achievement has been drastically overshadowed by the viral response to his age – which left fans convinced some trickery must be afoot.
After a picture of the young footballer sporting a mustache went viral on Twitter and Instagram, social media users were left stunned to learn how old Jeremiah actually is – begging the question: can anyone guess the young running back’s real age?
While many internet users guessed anywhere between 20 and 35, Jeremiah is actually almost a decade younger.
His revelation prompted an outpouring of disbelief online, where many were left in uproar, insisting there is no way he could be that young.
Not only did the photo of the running back show him holding his trophy, it also showed a tattoo on his right arm – sparking even more questions.
A TikTok user shared a video of the football player confirming his age – and viewers were left stunned when it was revealed, so can you guess how old the running back is?
Despite the disbelief, one mom wrote that she remembered him when he was younger, and that he had a mustache then too
Although many users can’t believe the boy is only 12 years old, others are claiming he just looks much older than he is. Jeremiah is pictured aged 10
One user was in such shock over Jeremiah’s real age, they even suggested the picture was photoshopped. Jeremiah pictured alongside his father aged 10
Users claimed there was ‘zero chance’ he wasn’t a grown man, before adding that he looked like he ‘had a mortgage.’
Others said he ‘couldn’t be 12 with a Steve Harvey mustache’, and added that he looked like he was from the hit movie ’21 Jump Street.’
The 12-year-old went viral after winning an award at the 12U MVP honors award at the Youth National Championships.
One TikTok user posting under the name @hoodnews24 shared what appears to be a video from the championships, in which Jeremiah can be seen holding his trophy – before going on to confirm his age to the stunned social media creator.
‘Hey man, I don’t know, how old are you?’ the TikTok user asks Jeremiah, who simply responds: ’12.’
‘The boy is 12!’ @hoodnews24 tells his followers in surprise, before adding that he would be outraged if the young player doesn’t go straight to the NFL.
‘Yes sir, boy you’re ready,’ he added. ‘You deserve it, you deserve it.’
The comments section of the video was flooded with similar stunned reactions from TikTok users, with many joking that Jeremiah ‘might have graduated in 2012’, while insisting that he could not be as young as he claimed.
‘Y’all misunderstanding, he ran for 12 touchdowns,’ another person chimed in, while a third joked: ‘He was born on a leap year he good.’
As social media users lose their minds over Jeremiah’s actual age, his mom, Shana Evans, has been gushing over her ‘baby’ on Facebook.
But even the mom’s own friends can’t believe her son is 12, as one user commented: ‘That ain’t no d**n baby.’

Others demanded to see his birth certificate, claiming it must be ‘fake’, while another joked that the only way his age could be legitimate is if it was ‘in dog years’.
‘He may only be 12 years old, but that mustache says divorced at least twice,’ commented one user.
