This Semi-Pro Football Player is One Huge Dude
In the National Football League, we’ve seen some rather large defensive tackles like Sam Adams and Cortez Kennedy but this semi-pro player makes those dudes look like action figures.
John Taylor, a member of the Central Penn Piranha in the Gridiron Developmental Football League is nearly seven feet tall and weighs over 500 pounds. This season, Taylor’s size has helped lead the Piranha to an undefeated season so far at 11-0 and the #1 overall best defense in the league. He’s so big that quarterbacks of opposing teams can’t see the linebackers blitzing in from behind him.
Taylor’s nickname on the team? House.
In case you are wondering, Taylor did play some college football at Virginia Union. He didn’t make any NFL squads because teams deemed him to be “too big” to play.
