That's being racist against short people. The PC police will be coming to see you at a Twitter near you
IKR!! From my coaching experience, this is true. We once had a kid that was 6'2" maybe 6'3" and he could jump out of the gym, probably a 38-40" vertical guy and explosive leaper. He also played DB for us. Kid was left-handed and his only skills were running and dunking. He had no shot outside of 3' and couldn't dribble with his right hand to save his life. Well, the basketball coach was telling him he should quit football and concentrate on his sport. Naturally, that doesn't sit well with football guys and it shouldn't sit well with any coach. By the way, college coaches LOVE athletes, not just the kids that play their sport. Love versatility. Our DB coach told him basically what I said, "kids his height are a dime a dozen and you had best be amazing with the ball and shoot it. He took this advise and played 4 years at Alabama State in their secondary.
I haven't seen him play basketball but I do know of a guy who has called a few of his basketball games. He's not D1 talent on the hardwood.
