13. Peter Crouch – Soccer
It isn’t that English footballer Peter Crouch is the tallest player to have ever stepped onto the pitch, rather it’s his elite level of play despite standing at 6’7” that’s so remarkable.
Crouch has been a top talent in England’s most talented soccer league, the Premier League since 1998.
The Englishman has quite the advantage at striker, towering over the rest to create open opportunities. Not only has Crouch played for notable teams like Tottenham, Aston Villa, Liverpool and Stoke City, the lofty forward also played two World Cups (2006, 2010) for England.
