Meet Brittney Griner: Texas Phenom

Basketball Spotlight always tries to bring you entertaining things from the basketball world. I came across this segment of this 6’8 girl that’s a senior in high school and a true phenom. Her name is Brittney Griner. Brittney Griner age 17, was born in April of 1991. In 2006 Griner enrolled into Nimitz High School located in Houston, Texas as a six-foot tall freshman without having played any organized basketball. Griner started out on the jayvee squad, and then worked her way up to the varsity where she led the team with 13 points per game and earned first-team all-district honors.

Griner has grown an astonishing 8 inches and wears a man's size 18 shoe which is why her friends nicknamed her "Big Foot." She is considered one of the top female basketball players in the country and have drawn interest from many top college powerhouses including Texas, Texas Tech, Kansas, LSU, Wake Forest, Baylor, Tennessee and many others. On November 12, 2008 she officially signed a letter of intent to attend Baylor University.

Griner has the potential to become perhaps the most dominate woman basketball player in the history of the game.
