giant armspan basketball player

7'6" Taco Fall, also known as Elhadji Tacko Sereigne Diop Fall (born 1995) is a Senegalese basketball player who currently plays college basketball as a freshman for the UCF Knights.   Born and raised in Senegal, Fall moved from Senegal to the United States at age 16. Initially, he played soccer and had no interest in basketball. Fall visited The International Sports Training Institute - DAKAR, known as ISTI-DAKAR, in Senegal.   Taco joined ISTI-DAKAR and was brought to USA by Simmons with the help of his sports foundation, The Ben Simmons Sports Foundation. Taco lived with Ben Simmons for one year in Houston and played for his first organized basketball school team there. He trained with Simmons and the likes of NBA top 50 player Hakeem Olajuwon.

Due to his size and eight-foot wingspan, Fall was one of the most highly scouted high school basketball centers in the country. Fall first played for Jamie's House Charter School in Houston, Texas where his team won the State Championship 2012. Tacko played with ISTI Allstars summer travel team. He played in several NCAA certified events.   Fall then attended with Liberty Christian Preparatory School in Tavares, Florida. With nearly 40 different schools expressing interest in him, Fall committed to the University of Central Florida, who had officially signed him on October 28, 2014. He would play with the UCF Knights under head coach Donnie Jones.

Fall stands 7 ft 6 in (2.29 m) and is still growing in 2015, making him the tallest high school basketball player in the country while he played for Jamie's House Charter and Liberty Christian Prep. He is a devout Muslim. He maintained a 3.6 grade point average in high school. Fall has aspirations of becoming an engineer for companies such as Siemens or Microsoft, making a future in professional basketball unclear. His younger brother is 5'9", while two of his uncles are 6'8".

This biography of basketball player Taco Fall shows how the sport helped him get out of Senegal and into an American college. But he is as interested in getting an education as he getting into the National Basketball Assocation.
Taco Fall looks like a thin guy and he STILL weighs 280 lbs. (127kg)! Giants have to eat a giant amount of food even if they look lanky. And that means they have to buy a lot of toilet paper. I don't want to think about how much TP some bodybuilder giants go through. Taco is in an aerobic sport so he burns all those calories running around the basketball court. Then he has to eat even more to bulk up. This can be difficult for any man over 7'0" tall. Taller than that and lower back problems develop. And the structures that hold your guts together start to tear from strain. Taco is well into the height vs. health danger zone.
