I found this randomly one day on Twitter and even though the play is at NC State’s expense, nonetheless I feel it is worth enjoying.

"Big Man Touchdown"
Tech vs NC State, 1996. As the Wolfpack fumbled the ball, Derrick Shepard, weighing in at 295 pounds saw his opportunity, picked up the fumble and rumbled 27 yards to paydirt. This was his first touchdown at any playing level. pic.twitter.com/TF8oBebaN0
Look at him go! With those big ol’ pads that make him look even larger! Not much beats a chunky defensive tackle running with the ball in open space. Plus, I mean, did you see the pads these guys wore back then? Big ol’ big-ass pads. How anyone managed to move at all back in the day is beyond me.
Pictured above, a European Eagle Owl dance troupe. At least I assume it’s a dance troupe. I dunno, maybe European owls have different customs than North American owls.
