This boy might be a player to shine in the world Volleyball sky in years to come…

 

Maicon dos Santos França is only 15 years old but is 2.12m tall, which is an unusual height for senior Volleyball let alone for his age group! His stature and way of playing at school tournaments did not go unnoticed by Brazilian Volleyball scouts. Fluminense F.C. won the battle for the prospect player and he joined their youth team, playing as a middle blocker and opposite hitter.

Maicon is summoned to prepare with Brazil national team for the upcoming FIVB Boys’ U19 World Championship, on August 21-30, and will likely get on the final list for the tournament in Tunisia. Given that he is only 15 years old, he will grow a few more centimeters for sure. Only a year ago, he was 2.08m tall…
