350-Pound Running Back David Fangupo Is Bigger and Faster Than You

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterFebruary 11, 2013

Just when you thought you knew what a perfect running back should look like, video of a behemoth back with blazing speed hits the Internet. 

David Fangupo is the new breed for a position best-suited for athletes that are light on their feet. Someone built like a semi-truck with the motor of a race car should be fairly useful on the football field, wouldn't you say? 

I dare you to watch this video and not let out an expletive while waving a hype towel above your head. 

According to the video's YouTube description, the high school football star is 6'2'', 350 pounds, which sounds about right when you review the footage. 

Now, if you are anything like me, you could probably stand to watch a great deal more of Fangupo running down field as an entire team tries to tackle him. 

You are in luck. 

West Hawaii Today reports the Kealakehe high school senior will be headed to the University of Hawaii, where we will hopefully see more domination on the ground. 

At that point, Hawaiian high school linebackers can breathe easier knowing they will not be tasked with the duty of trying to stop a tank with turbo boosts. 

When you combine Marshawn Lynch and Vince Wilfork, you get David Fangupo, a player who can run through his opponents just as easily as he can run around them.

It's up to them to get out of his way.
