Whether or not Kevin Ferguson II can play football matters little to me. All I know is that as soon as I saw how the kid looks — which is to say exactly like his father — I was hooked.
The Orlando Sentinel profiled Ferguson II who is the 16-year-old son of Kimbo Slice, the street fighter turned MMA fighter turned boxer. Ferguson II is going to be a junior running back for Booker T. Washington High School this season. He was a short-yardage running back for Miramar High last year, rushing for 275 yards and six touchdowns on 55 carries.
The football (and facial hair) apparently runs in the family. Kimbo Slice played college football at Miami for a season and a half and even had a tryout with the Dolphins. As for Kevin II, he’s 6’1″ and 195 pounds and waiting for scholarship offers. He also has a 3.2 GPA which should make it easy to qualify for any school academically.
If any school wants to boost ticket sales, recruiting Ferguson II seems like a no-brainer given the popularity of his father.
