Meet the ’12-year-old’ football star with moustache and tattoos who has Tyreek Hill fearing for his son

A PRE-TEEN football player from Texas has taken the internet by storm – because fans refuse to believe he is 12 years old.

Johnson quickly went viral after he was pictured with his trophy following his bonanza weekend.

However, it wasn’t the gong in his hand that got people talking – but instead, the snaps sparked fierce discussion over his real age.

Johnson has an impressive mustache over his top lip and also appears to have a tattoo sleeve on his right forearm.

So fans were stunned when he revealed his real age to a fan on TikTok after the event in the Sunshine State.

The fan asked a sheepish-looking Johnson: “How old are you?”

He replied: “Twelve.”

Johnson claims on his Twitter page to stand at 5ft11 and tips the scales at 198lbs.

He is versatile enough to line up as running back or offensive lineman, with the youngster currently starring for the Dallas Dragons Elite Academy (DEA).

His team has gone 20-0 this season with their star man taking the 12U Division 1 MVP award at the Youth National Champs.

But fans were quick to pile in and question how Johnson can possibly not even be a teenager yet.

One wrote: “So we supposed to believe not only that he is 12 but he is 12 years old with a half sleeve tattoo?”

Another laughed: “This boy got a mortgage.”

A third joked: “He born in a leap year.”

A skeptical fourth said: “12 with a tattoo and look like a 23-year-old and has a decent deep voice …..yeah he lying he ain’t fooling me…momma probably told him to lie his age for attention but it’s not gonna work with me.”

While another added: “Keep it real. He’s not 12.”

And even Miami Dolphins superstar Tyreek Hill got involved, saying he feared for his son’s safety if he had to play against Johnson.

Hill tweeted in disbelief: “If that 12-year-old really 12 my son not playing football, these kids built different.”

Under footage of Johnson barging his way past helpless kids, one impressed fan wrote: “This kid really has everything.”

Johnson’s socials suggest he is eligible for college in 2027 – and already fans are tipping him to go all the way to the NFL.

First up though, he has to start high school and progress up through 13U.
