A football player has left social media users in a frenzy after his true age was revealed online, prompting dozens of users to insist there is “no way” that he is as young as he claims to be.
Jeremiah Johnson, of Fort Worth, Texas, picked up an MVP award at the National Youth Championships in Miami over the weekend.
However, her success has been drastically overshadowed by the viral response to her age, which has left fans convinced there was some deception afoot.
After a photo of the mustachioed young soccer player went viral on Twitter and Instagram, social media users were stunned to learn how old Jeremiah actually is, begging the question: Can anyone guess the young running back’s true age?

While many internet users have guessed between 20 and 35… Jeremiah says she’s actually nearly a decade younger than the most youthful guess — revealing in an online video that she’s only 12 years old.
His revelation prompted an outburst of disbelief online, where many were left in an uproar, insisting that there’s no way someone who looks as mature as he is could be so young.
Not only did the photo of the running back show him holding his trophy, it also showed what appeared to be a tattoo on his right arm, prompting even more disbelief among users.
Users claimed there was “zero chance” that he wasn’t a grown man, before adding that he appeared to “have a mortgage.”
Others said he “couldn’t be 12 with a Steve Harvey mustache” and added that he looked like something out of the hit movie “21 Jump Street.”
The footballer went viral after a photo of himself with a mustache and tattoos surfaced on social media and users claimed he looked like a “grown man”.
A TikTok user shared a video of the football player confirming his age, and viewers were stunned when it was revealed, so can you guess how old the running back is?
The 12-year-old went viral after winning a 12U MVP Honors Award at the National Youth Championships.
A TikTok user who posted as @hoodnews24 shared what appears to be a video from the championships, in which Jeremiah can be seen holding up his trophy, before confirming his age to the stunned social media creator.
‘Hey man, I don’t know, how old are you?’ the TikTok user asks Jeremiah, who replies simply: “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 are you ready,” he added. “You deserve it, you deserve it.”
Users said there was “zero chance” and “no way” she was 12, before adding that she looked like she “had a mortgage”
The comments section of the video was inundated with similar dumbfounded reactions from TikTok users, with many joking that Jeremiah “might have graduated in 2012,” while insisting that he couldn’t be as young as he claimed.
“Y’all misunderstood, he ran for 12 touchdowns,” added another person, while a third quipped, “He was born in a leap year, he’s good.”
While social media users are losing their minds over Jeremiah’s actual age, his mother, Shana Evans, has been talking about her “baby” on Facebook.
But even the mom’s own friends can’t believe her son is 12, as one user commented: “He’s not a bloody kid.”
Despite her disbelief, one mom wrote that she remembered him when he was younger, and that even then he had a mustache.

One user was so shocked by Jeremiah’s true age, they even suggested the image was photoshoped. (Jeremiah pictured next to his father at age 10)
One user said, “Mustache says grown man, biceps say 12 years old.”
Others demanded to see her birth certificate, claiming it must be “fake,” while another joked that the only way her age could be legitimate is if she was “in dog years.”
Back in the day, Nyeem Powell, of Philadelphia, another 12-year-old football player left fans in shock after his six-foot, 340-pound stature made him look older
“He may only be 12, but that mustache says he’s been divorced at least twice,” one user commented.
Another was so shocked by Jeremiah’s true age, they suggested the photo had been doctored.
Despite her disbelief, one mom wrote that she remembered him when he was 10 and that he had a mustache even then.
In the past, another 12-year-old football player left fans in shock after his six-foot, 340-pound stature fooled others into thinking he was older.
Philadelphia’s Nyeem Powell also dominates his teammates and has faced many years of bullying due to his size.
The average height and weight for a boy Jeremiah and Nyeem’s age is 4.5 feet to 5.3 feet and 66 to 130 pounds, according to Children’s Wisconsin.
