‘House,’ Too Big for the NFL?

Today, John Taylor playing football, and he’s the largest football player of all time.

John Taylor goes by “House” and he’s a defensive tackle for the Central Penn Piranha of the Gridiron Developmental Football League.

House stands 6-foot-11, weighs 500 pounds and wears a 6XL jersey. For comparison’s sake, William “The Refrigerator” Perry, tipped the scales at 382. The Fridge was smaller than House by a whole cheerleader — 118 pounds.

Taylor is mostly used in short-yardage situations, where his size makes him a natural at occupying blockers. Ron Kerr, head coach of the Piranhas, explained House’s duties to WHP-TV in Harrisburg,PA.
