Football Player John “House” Taylor Is 6-11, 500 Pounds! [VIDEO]

Minor league football player John Taylor is nicknamed the house…and for good reason. This big fella comes in at 6’11” weighing a whopping 500 pounds. The Central Penn Piranha just became the most well known team in the history of the Gridiron Developmental Football League. Anytime you trot a guy out who outweighs the heaviest NFL player in history…by 90 pounds…you’ll open some eyes.

Taylor plays defensive tackle for the Piranha, and is strictly plays in short-yardage situations. At 500 lbs. it’s a feat in and of itself just getting this monster out on the field.

The Piranha are undefeated in the 2012 season at 10-0, so they can afford to use him sparingly. The GDFL playoffs begin¬†Saturday¬†and it will be interesting to see if House gets some action! Want to know more? Here’s the scoop.

  • Went to college at Virginia Union (Same school as Ben Wallace!)
  • 35-years-old
  • Has only recorded 3 total tackles the entire 2012 season
  • Only 1 sack too!
  • “House” says: “People expect super-human things. I’m still human.”
