It's not just athletes that are getting younger and younger these days.

Youth is being served in the press tent at the 2011 American Century Championship this week as 12-year-old Peyton Raab landed a media credential to "cover" this huge celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe.

The Lake Tahoe Daily Tribune reports Raab applied and was approved for a media credential, on behalf of his school paper.

"I've always been good at writing and getting juicy words into things," Raab told the Daily Tribune. "I just thought I should write about sports players. It's what I love most.

The whiz kid also said how it is amazing to have the chance to interview celebrity athletes like Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers on the golf course. Raab said he doesn't have a specific plan on who he would like to interview.

"I'm just going to walk around and see who I meet first,” he told the Daily Tribune. "If they are playing their round, I'll see if I can get an interview after."

Raab, a student at Gale Ranch Middle School in San Ramon, Calif., has been attending this celebrity golf event since he was 8. But this year he got a ride from Rodgers in a golf cart and helped the Packers quarterback by giving him putters.

Raab will have some great stories to tell about this summer vacation for the rest of his life. But first he'll be writing about them for his fellow students to read.
