Aaron “Bugatti” McNeil Jr. | #ItFactor

The base price of a 2019 Bugatti Chiron is around $2,998,000, about 100 times the cost of an average car after options & sales taxes are factored in. In Atlanta, Georgia at 5’10 156lbs size 12 shoe, Aaron McNeil jr may cost you more than that on the football field. The nickname Bugatti fits him well after showcasing the high-performance skills mimicking the rare Bugatti Chiron. Only 405 of the valuable cars have ever been manufactured. McNeil makes 406. 12-year-old Aaron ”Bugatti” McNeil happens to be the #itfactor on youth football’s juggernaut ”the dream team” out of Welcome All park in Fulton County Georgia. The talented team has yet to meet a challenge across the country in the two years McNeil has been apart of the regime. Although the 7th-grade phenomenon is all about the team, his individual accolades has separated him from the pack amongst the elite. Aaron Bugatti has earned multiple B2C MVP awards including the B2C Offensive Player of the Year award this past season. 

Contrary to popular belief that McNeil became apart of the already successful ”Dreamteam”, before his two year tenure with the squad he entered with an already winning resume from a completely different league & environment. #13 came to the team with a NWGYFL championship under his belt prior to the transition. Since then he has won 2 YFA championships and 2 B2C championships.  Accomplished is to say the least for the young athlete.  When McNeil collar bone was broken in the summer only one week before the start of a pre-season. His perseverance was on display when Aaron McNeil wished to go against the doctor’s demands & time table of 8 weeks to recover, Bugatti wanted to come back after only 5 weeks. Between Coach Moffett & the young McNeil’s parents Mr. Aaron McNeil senior & his mother Ms. Jemika McNeil they decided for his best interest that he sit out 9 weeks, a week further than what the doctor ordered. The decision paid off as Bugatti went on to dominate in #itfactor fashion throughout the season. 

What stands out even more on paper other than the enormous size, the athletic makeup & the shyness, is his grades in the classroom. He is currently an honor roll student & will be entering the 8th grade this fall.  McNeil is that good at his age that the average youth sport spectator can’t help but to think way ahead in prediction of the wide receivers future. Although Bugatti is a hybrid that could be an #itfactor on either side of the ball inside or outside of the box he is also unique enough to play at any skilled position, McNeil’s 2020 will no doubt be a spectacle. Good luck to Aaron ”Bugatti” McNeil & the dream team this season & their quest to become 1 of the most dominant youth football teams ever. #Itfactor
