With his baseball cap turned backwards, sweat-soaked T-shirt, and broad smile etched across his face, the only thing separating the host of the festivities from the participants was his impressive size. Otherwise, Tampa Bay defensive lineman was just the biggest kid on the field. (Spartanburg Herald-Journal)
