This is the kind of powerful human being who is out to crush their opposition on the football field so is it little wonder that brain injuries are being sustained?
Jesse Williams, an Australia native, is a defensive lineman for Alabama, but earlier this week he proved he could easily participate in the Strongest Man competition.
(AP)According to tweets from himself and teammates, Williams benched 600 pounds Thursday. Yes, that's six plates — on either side of the bar.
"Jesse Williams dominated 600 lbs on the bench this morning... Incredible" tweeted Alabama long snapper Cade Foster, who benched a stunning 455 pounds.
Williams started every game for the Crimson Tide last season. He had 24 tackles, four tackles for loss, three quarterback hurries and a pass breakup.
I'm sure the opposing offensive linemen who have seen this picture just can't wait to face Williams this fall.
