ENOLA, Pa. (CNN/WHP) - A football player with a minor league team in Central Pennsylvania is making quite a name for himself.
John Taylor, number 71, is 6'11" and weighs 500 pounds. Even though he's earned the nickname "House," he's built more like a mansion.
As a lineman for the Central Penn Piranha, his job is to take up space.
"Don't run my way, pretty much that's what I do," said Taylor.
Don't fall into the trap, though, of thinking House is all-powerful. He says he is not.
"There's sometimes when people expect super human things. I'm still a human," said Taylor.
In fact, most games he's watching, not playing, waiting for that moment when the other team only needs a few tough yards. Still, everyone who comes in contact with House never forgets him.
"One time, I actually fell and he fell on top of me, I could have swore I had two broken ribs," said player Nate Gibson.
