via Facebook He’s 6’5″, 400 pounds.  I could stop there and you’d say “oh my.”  How about if I follow that up with a few more things?  He’s in high school.  He plays football.  And, he plays RUNNING BACK.  Running back. He’s Tony Picard, starting defensive tackle (go figure) and running back (really, go figure) for White Swan High School in Yakima, Washington.  A high school running back weighing 200 pounds is good sized.  400 pounds?  C’mon, that isn’t fair. Picard is Native American - part Umatilla-Nez Perce Indian and part Sioux Indian.  He’s actually normally only used as a decoy on offense.  Why, I’m not sure. According to Picard’s coach, Andrew Bush, it usually takes five defenders to stop him. “Most teams will sacrifice five guys to stop him: four linemen and a middle linebacker. Here’s video of “Big Tone” running over other school kids like they’re ants. If you’re scoring at home, here are “Big Tone’s” big numbers carrying the football.  Give him the ball, coach.
