400-lb. high school running back tears up defenses

Nov 18, 2013, 4:42 AM

William Perry and Christian Okoye, eat your hearts out.

A Native American high school in Washington has been featuring a 6-foot-5, 400-lb. student at running back on its football team this season, and, needless to say, it takes a lot to bring him down.

Highlights of running back Tony “Big Tone” Picard of White Swan High School were posted to YouTube Saturday by Dirk Knudsen of the Northwest Prep Report. The video has already topped 1.5 million views in just over a day.

Picard, naturally, dwarfs the players who are responsible for tackling him, often requiring multiple players to take him down. “Big Tone” moves fairly well for his size, as well, and looks like he’s perfect for short-yardage situations.

Now that’s what we call smash-mouth football.
