By Nate LatschThe question was asked a few times on the sidelines during the first half of the Lee's Summit North football team's Class 6 semifinal game at De Smet last Friday. How tall is No. 5?Lee's Summit North standout junior defensive end Williams Nwaneri — also known as 'No. 5' – cuts an imposing figure on a football field for the Broncos. Listed at 6-foot-6 and 255 pounds, he stood head and shoulders above the other 21 players on the field with him in the Class 6 semifinal, leading to more than a few onlookers inquiring about his height.
