350 pound RB that named David Fangupo signed with Hawaii. I read that he may switch to defensive line. This guy can run for 350! Hawaii has a lot of great athletes in the high schools there so it's not like he's doing this against weak competition.
His best runs of his season with Kealakehe. This is the original video

Did you forget your sign?
Actually has a nice burst thru the hole, and nice leg drive. But I think there is a reason why his "long run" tape has 3 runs on it.
I'd hate to be a lb trying to tackle him .
Actually I wasn't kidding at all. I have a huge amount of respect for Hawians! Pacific Islanders in general are pretty athletic. The NFL has seen more and more of the Pacific islanders leaving Rugby and making it in football. Not only making it but making it big. Some of it probably comes from being able to be outside year round.
Or the CB! 185 pound man stepping in front of a 350 pound man who is running full speed, and he has to pop and drop him. That will make some players lose sleep the night before the game. He should make a great short yardage back.

This is true. You don't have to look far to see the impact players of Pacific island ethnicity have made in both college and the NFL.
Sine Missione -- Never be a spectator for unfairness or stupidity, argue for arguments sake; the grave will give plenty of time for silence.
350 guy who runs like that? In my book that's a SEC defensive tackle.
Did you know that Iowa is a Hawaiian word? It means "cold land far from water and volcanoes."
Trust me, I have a lot of respect for Hawaiians, I married one. And while there are some tremendous individual athletes coming out of the Islands these days, the overall athletic talent and team competition isn't as good, but is improving. Hence my sarcasm sign question....
Physiologically speaking Pacific Islanders have a higher muscle density than people of European or African descent. And yes it comes from all the rowing their ancestors did. It is amazing how much muscle the human shoulder can pack on. And like athletes in Florida, Georgia, Texas and California they benefit from great weather year around. Its just a matter of population.
Gotcha! Did she woo you with any of that island dancing?
Never danced...didn't need to, she was hot.
