Julian Newmans' father may have to think twice before letting him see a PG-13 movie but he has no problem sending him out onto the basketball court to break ankles.

A 12-year-old sixth grader from Orlando, Fla., Julian is the starting point guard for the varsity basketball team at Downey Christian High School where his father, Jamie, is the coach. In his second season playing on the varsity squad, Newman is averaging a double-double with 13.6 points and 10.5 assists per game. Just this week, Newman was named player of the game after posting 17 points and 9 assists in a win over Victory Prep Christian Academy.

This isn't the first time we've heard from Newman, either. He began making headlines last year after making his varsity debut as a fifth grader.
