Cameron Burnette, a 10 year old from Summeville, has been picked as "the next generation of superstar athletes," by Sports Illustrated Kids magazine.

The youth has been garnering national attention ever since his father posted a video (above) of Cameron dashing and weaving down a football field on YouTube. The Sports Illustrated Kids magazine also caught wind of the video, and has included Cameron in their "20 Under 20" edition.

GridIron Stud reports that the 4' 11", 85-pound player "ran for 2,360 yds and 34 tds last year in 8 games. He can line up in the slot and even runs out of the wild hog sometimes."

The Post and Courier has more on this amazing athlete. -- And here's a full list of the 20 athletes.
