Could a high school player named Tony Picard be the second coming of William (The Refrigerator) Perry?
Picard is 6-4 and 400 pounds, so it's no surprise he plays nose tackle for the White Swan Cougars in Washington state. But Picard is also a running back.
Rivals/Northwest Prep Report introduced Picard to the nation two weeks ago, but his story and the accompanying video have picked up steam online this weekend.
There are conflicting accounts of Picard's stats, but there is agreement that he has more than 500 yards and eight touchdowns.
"I kind of make a path for the smaller guys to score and serve as a decoy," Picard Indian Country Today Media Network
Picard is a senior, and he is drawing some college interest.
"Chances are he’ll be recruited as a lineman, but there’s always the chance that he’ll get his chance to carry the ball on those short touchdown runs," White Swan coach Andrew Bush said. "It's tough to stop 400 pounds!"
Picard's Native American heritage includes Umatilla-Nez Perce and Sioux. White Swan is located on the Yakama Indian Reservation.
