He was a big linemen.There is nothing healthy about football.Those guys on the line are walking refrigerators.They survive because of their youth.You run into a guy that huge you just bounce off.Moving them a foot left is close to impossible.Thats the whole point isn't it?And we're not even talking about what the collisions between 2 or 3 or 10 of these guys do.RIP my man.You just left this life too early.Way too early.
