Apparently Wisconsin nose tackle Olive Sagapolu is sneaky athletic. You may see him as just another plodding defensive tackle at 6’2″ and 346 pounds, but don’t let the weight fool you, the man can do some extraordinary things despite that hefty frame.
Olive took to Instagram on Monday to show off video of himself doing backflips in beautiful Hawaii. Punter Connor Allen joins in on the acrobatics as well for backflip No. 2, but no one really cares about a 169-pound guy doing this.
Obviously everyone’s initial reaction to Olive’s backflips is “OMG THIS SHOULDN’T BE POSSIBLE.” However, after scrolling through Olive’s IG it looks like he’s been doing these with ease since 2015:
There you go. Wisconsin’s nose tackle can jam running lanes (he had 17 tackles and three sacks last season) and pull off aerial tricks. Pretty neat.
