Georgia Bulldogs 300-Pound Defensive Lineman Does Back Handspring (Video)


When you are a college football player in the Southeastern Conference, you know that you are among the most athletic players in the nation. For junior college transfer Toby Johnson, know that was not enough. He had to go out and prove that he was one of the elite athletes despite his size.

At 300-pounds, you wouldn’t expect many athletic feats from Johnson, but he wanted to show everyone what he’s got and he did that with an Instagram video of him doing a back handspring that was posted to cornerback Shaquille Wiggins’ account.

Since Instagram is behind times and doesn’t allow you to share videos, here is the video posted to YouTube:

Now that is impressive.

All we can hope for next is that Johnson will see the field and have an opportunity to scoop up a loose ball and run it back for a touchdown so we can see a fat man touchdown with a back flip celebration. You aren’t human if you aren’t rooting for that.
