Tacko 'Taco' Fall is not just the owner of one of the best names in the world, he is also a 7-foot-5 high school junior at Liberty Christian Prep in Orlando, Florida.

Originally from Senegal, Fall has spent time in Texas, Ohio and Tennessee, and only recently started playing basketball. He's still very raw despite being nearly a foot taller than anyone else on the floor, he only averages 5 rebounds a game.

From Yahoo Prep Rally:

According to the [Orlando] Sentinel, he's eating entire pizzas covered in chicken and hamburger to keep weight on his 250-pound frame. In that sense, he's your typical teenager. In another sense, he's larger than life. He stands 1 1/2 inches taller than current Oklahoma City center Hasheem Thabeet, the tallest current NBA player (although, D-League center Paul Sturgess stands 7-8). Fall, whose full name is Elhadji Serigne Tacko Diop Fall, reportedly has a 7-year-old brother who is already 5-9.

Eldhadji Serigne Tacko Diop Fall!

Fall does hope to play ball in college and beyond, but also says he dreams of becoming a biochemist.
