Seven-year-old Billy Bob Bracher’s goalkeeping abilities have caught the eyes of many, as he has become a viral sensation. Only the most elite of young athletes become YouTube phenomenons, or even gain any type of attention at such a young age.

The young goalkeeper will be joining 1860 Munich’s academy next year, and you can see why here:

It’s not often you see kids that willing to lay out for a ball knowing that they’re going to hit the ground, but this kid really has what it takes and it shows.

I mean, really, you don’t just become a viral sensation for no reason. This video below shows his true competitive nature, as he ferociously comes up for sliding tackles, steals, you name it. (The clip also shows he’s human, giving up a few goals):

It would not be surprising for Bracher to become the next great Bundesliga keeper, considering he’s already gotten so much notoriety. That tends to keep most real competitors going to see just how great they can become.

If this kid can continue to improve, it’s only a matter of time before he’s making things hard for players in Bundesliga. And you don’t want to be on the wrong side of that contest.
