Teenage Cornhole Prodigy Grandville Cornhole Pro Player

Teenage Cornhole Prodigy Grandville Cornhole Pro Player. A 16-year-old boy is a back-to-back champion of the Michigan State Singles Cornhole Championship. He has beaten professional players, and he is the only amateur in the country to win the singles champion event in an American Cornhole League Open event.

His name is Ellis. He practices for three hours after school every day. He says he has what it takes to become a professional player, but he can’t yet because of his age.

The American Cornhole League only allows eight players under 18 to play in the professional league. To get that spot, you have to be one of the first to qualify.

Ellis, a junior at Grandville High School, is looking to fill one of those spots in the future. But he is also working to balance his schoolwork with his cornhole playing.

“I have to take my schoolwork to big tournaments, and sometimes I miss three days of school in a row. It gets tough. But after every tournament, I come home and focus on my schoolwork,” Ellis said.

He hopes to continue to grow in his cornhole career and is spending his summer playing in tournaments.

“I’ve only played at these big tournaments, beaten a lot of pro players, but I haven’t played at the pro level for more than a year yet. So it would be fun to make it and prove that I can play with all those guys consistently,” Ellis said.

He has already been offered a college scholarship to play cornhole. Ellis said right now, he is focused on improving and finishing his school year strong.
