One of the most appealing things about high school football is getting to see some athletes play both ways, on offense as well as defense. Iron man football generally isn’t played on the collegiate or NFL level, so it’s nice to see the versatility of some of the teenage athletes.

White Swan High School, located in the state of Washington, has a nose guard on their team that comes in at 6-4, and 400-pounds. That seems pretty standard for someone at that position. Very simple to stuff running backs with someone that size right there in the middle. And, like most high school athletes, he plays on offense too…

At running back.

Yes, that’s Tony Picard. He’s the RB/NG for the White Swan Cougars. He’s the biggest running back at any level in the United States, which I’m sure we could have all pretty much assumed confidently.

It’s an interesting combination indeed, and I feel very sorry for anyone on a defensive unit that has to attempt to take down this monster.

    400 isnt even standard for a lineman. He is massive even by football standards.

    I feel bad for his heart… and knees.
