A little over two years ago, a recruiting video surfaced that consumed much of the Internet in the blink of an eye.
Although Auburn had just signed five-star running back Michael Dyer in 2010, it was 6', 291 lb. running back/fullback/h-back/human destroyer Ladarious Phillips that soon received attention on a national scale. This attention came in large part because a) 300 lb. running backs don’t surface, well, ever and b) his high-school-highlight footage was nothing short of remarkable.
We’ll get to that shortly.
First and foremost, I wish Phillips nothing but the best in whatever he does and wherever he ends up. Next, I’d like to honor Phillips’ career at Auburn—and perhaps his football career in general, if he is indeed done with the game—by reliving this magnificent high-school footage one more time. Ladies and gentlemen, buckle up those chinstraps.
Phillips was on the field as Auburn’s fullback last season, but he didn't receive a single carry. I understand that their backfield was crowded, but how, and I mean how, could you deprive us of such majestic highlights?
