Demias Jimerson, an 11-year-old running back for Arkansas' Wilson Intermediate League is so good at football that he has been banned from scoring too many touchdowns.
He is going to score almost every time he touches the ball, Wilson Intermediate School Principal Terri Bryant told Fox 16.
At just 11 years old, Jimerson is reminding many people of Razorback great Madre Hill.
If you were looking at them you would say they were very much similar,Darryl Baker told Fox 16. He coached Hill and now referees Jimerson's games. I mean they both run really fast, good kids, run with the same style.
The leagues has implemented a little known rule called the Madre Hill Rule, which now limits Jimerson from scoring if he already has scored three touchdowns and his team is ahead by at least 14 points. The rule is named after the Arkansas Razorbacks great Madre Hill.
The aim of the rule isn't to hold Jimerson back, but to ensure the game is fun for everyone. The school's principal told Sports Grid that a rule like this gives other children who aren't as talented a chance to learn how to play the game.
Jimerson was kind of shocked initially, but is okay with it, Sports Grid reported. He also told of his priorities in a recent media interview.
I'm gonna run hard and bring our team to victory, Jimerson said. But God always comes first, before anything, and grades second.
