While many fifth-graders have a hard time knocking down a jumper or making a layup, Ashlyn Watkins is on the court dunking.

The 11-year-old showed off her impressive athleticism during a recent East Columbia (South Carolina) Youth Basketball League game. A teammate was able to get the ball to her in transition, and Watkins did the rest.

There is a bit of a discrepancy as to how tall Watkins is. A YouTube video suggests she's 5'11", while MaxPreps has her listed at 6'1".

Even though the game was being played on a 9-foot hoop, it doesn't take away from the feat. Not many fifth-graders are able to throw down like that.
