The 400 pound run stuffer was an asset to the team on and off the field, according to his head coach Jason Brotherton, per KSLA12 news in Louisiana.

“You can always put another person in there to play, but you can’t replace that big 400-pound guy. Cause he was a big kid sitting in locker 59,” he said.

“If I could describe him, he was a man of few words but many smiles. He didn’t talk a lot but he was always smiling” Brotherton said.
