I’m going to dispense with the usual mockery about offering a kid who just turned fifteen (even if he is already 6-foot-3 and 292 pounds), because how could you not want somebody named Brodarious Hamm as your nose guard of the future?
Filed under Georgia Football, Recruiting
292 pounds at FIFTEEN YEARS OLD?! Forget the concussion issue. I’m not sure I’d let any son of mine play the game because of the damage it does to your heart. I get that he’s 6’3, but 292 pounds is a little ridiculous. And to hit that weight before you’re even old enough to drive? That’s just unsafe. I just really hope that some of our big uglies note the example of Matt Stinchcomb and David Pollack and lose the weight after they’re done playing. The payoff comes in added years at the end.
Guys like Pollock & Stinch had to work feverishly to put as much weight on as possible just to compete with the true freaks of nature that are so humongous. If it was 1955 and players were required to go both ways, Pollock & Stinch would be athletic enough to work in that system. The John Jenkins types…not so much.
My kid brother is a collegiate thrower and I watched him literally force feed an extra PBJ several times a day and then drink those dreadful protein shakes in an effort to bulk up. Now that he’s in college (and there is no financially worthwhile career in shot put) he has dropped a good bit of weight and eats reasonably.
Yeah. I hear ya. But the Jenkins types can also work to lose the weight if they’re disciplined. And Lord knows they need to after football is over.
This article opened my eyes to the issue a few years back:
I would worry about a kid that big that early too.
By the time he gets to Phoenix or Athens the now young Bro will be a country-cured fully aged Hamm having replaced Mike Tyson with the obligatory cameo in Hangover Part IV. When asked for comment about offers to children in general, Todd’s publicist released a statement saying that a pork chop by any other name is a porterhouse even when met in a Cracker Barrel
Tyson is a vegan now and looked pretty lean when I saw him on TV recently. So if they are looking for a porkchop for the next Hangover sequel, we may have their hamm, er man.
Who knew T-Rex would turn into a herbivore? Maybe the start of it was when he spit out Evander’s ear piece
He wants to hear from Ga. Tech?!
A little red and black pepper should help that kid season well.
The kid has two many syllables in his name. The better players have no more than two. Well except for Gates. Then there is Rambo, nevermind. Man it sucks when your theories don’t hold water, it took me all weekend and a thirty pack to come up with that one.
Look on the bright side, Barkevious Mingo was able to turn a random surplus of six syllables into a #6 pick albeit with the Browns and he didn’t even have the best first name in his family. I predict big things for Brodarius
“Mingo is the son of Hugh Mingo and Barbara Johnson. He has two older brothers, Hugh and Hughtavious. His unusual first name was created by his mother, adding the first three letters of her first name to the equally random letters Kevious. The name won the 2009 Name of the Year award.” wiki amirite
That’s good stuff right there.
(h/t to the MIA Name of the Year for doing what others won’t)
