Professional football is a game of rigorously sorted body types. Wide receivers are tall and skinny, offensive linemen are tall and fat, and running backs are short and squat.
Tony Picard, of the Yakama Indian Nation in Washington State, is out to change that last one.
The 6' 4" (and by some accounts 6' 5"), 400 lb. high-school football player started his career at Washington State's White Swan High School anchoring the defensive line. In an unconventional move straight out of Friday Night Lights, however, his coach moved Picard to running back, and a viral sensation was born.

Joy Johnson's joy was running.
The 86-year-old, who spent some two hours every morning running the track and bleachers at a local high school in her hometown of San Jose, Calif., collapsed and died Monday, the day after completing her 25th New York City Marathon.
"She went out happy," her daughter, Diana Boydston, tells the Wall Street Journal. "She couldn't have asked for more than that, except maybe a few more years."

Soulful music legend James Taylor could probably soothe plenty of folks simply by vocalizing the phone book.
But the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer got off to a bumpy public start Thursday night when he took on the national anthem while opening Game 2 of the World Series at Boston's Fenway Park.
Instead of launching into "The Star Spangled Banner," Taylor inadvertently started singing the lyrics to "America the Beautiful" before getting back on track and belting out the national anthem.

The Pittsburgh Pirates won their first playoff game in 21 years on Tuesday night, and no one was more excited than Phil Coyne.
When the 95-year-old usher, who's been showing baseball fans to their seats for more than 77 years, was asked by TBS how he felt about the possibility of seeing a winning season for his team, he stole the show (and hearts of viewers) with his excited reply: "We're just hoping and hoping."
The spritely senior, who has seen baseball greats including Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle and Jackie Robinson in action, began ushering as a teen in the mid-1930s, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
His pay for the day: 75 cents.
