Huge, Fast 350-Pound Running Back Has Scholarship With Hawaii

Monster 350-Pound RB Has Serious Wheels, Earns Scholarship With Hawaii

(Yahoo) - It’s not particularly surprising that David Fangupo is a Division I college football recruit. After all, the Kailua-Kona (Hi.) Kealakehe High senior stands 6-foot-2 and roughly 350 pounds … before a big meal. What is surprising is that he is expected to play running back starting next year at his home state’s largest university, with Fangupo agreeing to sign a national letter of intent with Hawaii once he is academically cleared to do so.

Yet, as the video above shows, there’s a reason why Fangupo was recruited as a running back. The big beefy teen can really move once he gets through the line of scrimmage. Like a supersized Jerome Bettis, once Fangupo gets going downhill, he’s just not going to be brought down.

“I felt like it was not real at the moment,” Fangupo told West Hawaii today. “I’m excited and feel blessed that [Hawaii would offer Fangupo a scholarship].

“It’s just pretty much playing for my home team and family and being around people I know. It goes from going to home [on the Big Island] to home again. All the support from my family is still there.”
