Billy Boyd, 15, has head measures 25 inches around while an average grown man's head is about 21 to 23 inches in circumference.

As regulation helmets aren't available in his size the boy from Delaware is not allowed to play in games at the Delaware Military Academy, according to The News Journal of Wilmington.

Billy said: ''I feel like I'm being punished,'' Billy said. ''I've lost one year and it looks like I'm not going to be able to play another one.''

His father Bill added: ''I'm not knocking DMA, but I just think the rules are not always in the best interest of the kids.

''He should have been allowed to take part in practices so he didn't fall behind.''
