When I was in college, in 1987, playing what was then I-AA, I was a defensive lineman at 6'3" and 270, and I had to bulk up to get there.

8th grade? What is that, 14? Christ that's not good for him being that weight. Hope his parents are proud, and are prepared to outlive him.

Nah... 5'3" and 270 is unhealthy.  The kid does look doughy though, maybe he'll tone up a bit with proper encouragement.

Or maybe he'll drown in a bucket of Arby's Sauce.

It probably not what you think.  He's just a big, strong farm kid.  I'm sure he works hard and eats hearty.

The pituitary gland on that kid must be working overtime

You mean a kid that will be highly above average in height and weight when he his an adult might be highly above average in height and weight as a teenager?!

Is he that big because of football or is hejust a big kid that plays football? It doesn't really matter too much the kid looks happy enough.

Letting that kid be a linebacker in elementary school is reckless. When I played as a kid there were weight limits to certain positions. Do you really want him tackling a 100 pound running back during a game? Make that kid a lineman before he hills somebody

Friend of mine back in the 8th grade was about 6'6" and 270.  Nose tackle on the football team.  Some kids are just huge.

/ he was also the druid in our D&D campaign, FWIW

Our local youth league would limit him to the linesman. We have another kid that people were complaining about, he'd tackle other kids by kinda picking them up by the shoulder pads and toss them on the ground. His team's response, would you rather them do that or land his 240lb body on a 100lb kid?

not always, growth spurts are different, a lot of guys who are successful in the pros have later growth spurts while guys who were successful in college had premature growth spurts

I went to school with a kid who was 5'7 in 6th grade, so pretty tall compared to the rest of us. He never grew another inch. It was really odd.

I played junior high school football against a team that had one of these behemoths at fullback, not sure about 6'3" but he was definitely listed at over 250 lbs. Like trying to tackle a tank. Felt bad about it, but basically you had to cut block him to get him on the ground. No way you could tackle him high. Wonder if he made it through his entire high school career with functioning ankles.

Another guy on their team had a moustache. Probably flunked 3 times just so he could dominate 8th graders.

I was going to say he didn't really look like a linebacker. He looks more like a defensive end.

Hah. I would imagine he was an undercover officer if he wasn't such a dumbass and a total try-too-hard troublemaker.

This kid thinks that dude is tiny.

I suppose the linked kid has a few years to get up to 400 lbs. But this kid is a RB. Poor defenders trying to tackle him.

I also love that the 6'4" 400 lb senior has a brother who is 5'8" 155.

Holy fark. Imagine him falling on you as you tackle him.

My 7 year old nephew is 5' 0".  My sister decided to not let him play football this year.  The league wasn't going to let him play with his age group and was going to try and put him a 12-14 year old league.

/she has to carry his birth certificate with him to games (baseball, soccer, basketball and football) to prove his age.

It looks less like he's going to falling on poor #3 here but rather he's going to eat him instead.

Their playbook must have two pages.  Monster Off Tackle Left and Monster Off Tackle Right.  Sure, he'll get tired eventually, but I bet the defense gets tired from tackling him first.

Heck, they could probably put him in as a FB, hand off to a normal-sized HB who shadows him, and make the defense deal with BEEFCAKE without being able to just tackle his legs.

I'm sad that the best nickname his team came up with for him is "Big Tone".  COME ON!

There are a lot of parents who do hold their kids back so that they can theoretically be bigger & smarter than the kids who haven't had as much time to develop/grow.

We didn't take that approach, even though we could have done so due to our kid'd bday being in September. I guess that (amongst other things) makes me a horrible parent these days.

Saw that happen in a bantam hockey I was playing in.  A6'1'' bearded 14 year old drove our 5'3" defenseman into the end boards and broke his femur.  Fountaining blood everywhere.  Fortunately, one of our team's Dads was an emergency room doctor, and another was a paramedic, or our guy could easily have died.
