If you go with a large floor and wall then you may want to have some neutral colored sheets to cover the areas that are not needed when doing single shot. Its best to have the green background and floor only as big as needed to extract the image to avoid the excessive spill.
I've thought about going to a painted wall setup but having a backdrop stand to hang gray sheets on each side to block the green where it isn't needed. I'd then have the entire wall to use for the occasions where it was needed for a larger group.

The boy in the photo has the glare in his eyes like he is going to pummel someone. I'm guessing a linebacker?
