DALLAS - A 12-year-old boy from Texas says he just wants to play football. But the local Pee Wee association says he's just too big.
Elijah Earnheart is 6 foot 1 and weighs almost 300 pounds.
That's more than twice the weight the Pee Wee rule book allows for kids in his grade.
Elijah wasn't even allowed to weigh in.
WFAA TV reports comedian Steve Harvey has invited the boy to be a guest on his talk show next month.
Elijah is also apparently getting to practice with the San Diego Chargers this week.
