    400 lb RB

    Anyone know anything about this 6'4" RB from a high school in Washington state that weighs in at 400 lbs?

    http://on.aol.com/video/-unstoppable...6pLid%3D407778

    I can't believe it but this reports describes him as a speed back. I wonder where he goes from here i.e. college and position

    Yet, the only clips show him to be incredibly slow.... darn, what to believe?

    Some coach may take a shot on him assuming he'll lose some weight when he's in a structured workout program, but as is he's too fat to play high level college football.

    Not sure I'd be thrilled if my kid was playing him. You ankle tackle him and he could do some real damage falling on you.

    I don't know about other positions, nor his overall athletic talent based upon that clip, but watching it, it seems like they might be a smaller division school as the size of everyone else wasn't very big. In college, at least in the upper reaches of D1, he'd never get away w/ playing RB. When defenders are routinely benching 300+ pounds, its not all that tough to dive at that guy's ankles and bring him down, he doesn't appear nimble enough to actually make a cut and burst thru a hole.

    This kid would get completely owned in college football.

    Just looks like a big fat kid... There was zero things impressive in that video. He goes down pretty easily for someone twice the size of people hitting him.
    Choo got it, dude.

    It has a link to a prep scouting report on him.

    https://www.facebook.com/ESPN/posts/650150085031751 this is him sticking up for himself on facebook

    http://www.examiner.com/article/excl...S-EX-Celebrity Other quotes I found from him

    The guy actually didnt ask to be running back and he plays D line also . His coach put him there..he sounds like a real humble guy that will do anything the coach asks of him

    Maybe they should have tried putting a piece of fried chicken behind the line of scrimmage each play.

    So...because he is bigger than everyone else he shouldn't play RB?
