Meet David Fangupo, the 350-Pound High School Running Back Who Runs Over Everyone

Imagine if your refrigerator grew feet, put on a football jersey and ran really fast.

Meet David Fangupo, a 350-pound fullback from Kealakehe High School in Kailua-Kona, Haw. Here he is in action:

Those other players didn’t have a prayer of tackling Fangupo on those runs. Their best shot was to let him run by them and then see if five or six of them could somehow bring him down by jumping on his back.

The 6-foot-2 Fangupo committed to play college football at Hawaii after head coach Norm Chow offered him a scholarship. He was also recruited by BYU, Georgia Tech and Utah.

It’s not clear which position Fangupo will play in college, but he’d be a killer short-yardage back.
