I'm not the only one that noticed that the perspective on this picture made Philip Wheeler look like Paul Bunyon. However, let's talk perspective. Wheeler is in the far back and the camera perspective is looking down. This makes him look taller. Remember, #42 on the right side is Adamm Oliver, who happens to be 2" taller than Wheeler.
Now, don't ask me to explain why his head makes Barry Bonds' look like peanut.
