OSG High: Whoa! A 400 lb High School Football Running Back?


Football analysts always talk about a 180 lb cornerback trying to stop a 230 lb running back.

Now imagine being a 160 lb high school football safety, and you see this coming at you…

Yeah, how exactly do you stop that?

By the way…that…is 6-4, 400 pound Tony Picard a senior at White Swan (WA) High School and yes, he really does play running back. And he's apparently pretty good at it.

According to a story on the website, Picard runs for 80-120 yards a game and is averaging over a touchdown a game.

Picard apparently began as a lineman, but impressed his coach with his athletic ability. Coach Andrew Bush says Picard still plays nose tackle too.

Ha! The whole premise of this is awesome. And yeah, the photo on Brock Huard's Twitter page is scary and impressive at the same time.

We will look for some video of Picard, but felt the photo alone was enough to show why this is a story worth mentioning….
