    Unhappy Can I still grow taller at 15?

    Im 15 and I am 6 foot 1 which is not tall enough for discus
    I think I might be finished with puberty, some people say I look like 17.
    I havent grown since 6 to 8 months ago where I grew half an inch.
    My dad is 6 foot 5, my mom is 5 foot 6 ,brother is 6 foot 6
    I have lots of hair everywhere, except on my chest, barely have any there. Got lots of hair on thighs, legs, arms, and got lots of pubic hair in all the places.

    My dream height is 6 foot 3 or 4, and in order to be successful in discus, that is the very least height you have to be to be good.

    I believe that girls stop growing at 15 but boys grow most from 15-18!! You still have plenty of time. Good luck.

    At only 15, I don't think you are done growing yet, or at least it would be really surprising if you are!

    How old was your brother when he stopped growing?

    Some men continue to grow even into their college years / early 20's. If you read about college basketball players you will see that multiple started at one height and left at another.

    My brother was 6 foot 4 at 15 and then he grew 2 inches to 6 foot 6 when he was 15 or 16, I remember he always had very hairy legs like i did..

    Re: Can I still grow taller at 15?

    I remember going to my 10 year high school reunion when all of us were in our late 20s and it seemed to me like all of the boys had gotten much taller than I remembered them being when we graduated. I even commented to several of them about it asking whether they got taller. And one of my friends said that she also noticed it too.

    So in answer to your question, yes boys definitely can and do get taller after 15 so I really wouldn't be too worried about it if I were you. Besides your already lucky to be over 6 ft. Can you imagine how upset all of the boys who are only 5'5 or 5'6 at your age must feel about themselves?
