Mississippi State OL Rufus Warren tried cheerleading

Among sports, football players have been notoriously known for using unusual routines to help their physical status on the field. Some athletes have attempted yoga, others a ballet recital, but Mississippi State’s offensive lineman Rufus Warren might be attempting to one up everyone else by cheer leading.

Listed at 6-foot-7, 299 pounds on the school’s official website, Rufus deals with some of the most powerful lineman in collegiate football, going up against other SEC powerhouses. You would think that was the toughest job he’s had to deal with, right? Well take a look at the video and see what appears when Warren tries to pick up a cheerleader. Seems like he wasn’t sure how to handle the situation…

I think that cheerleader is going to change a few words in Omi’s song now, “Oh I think that I found myself a cheerleader, he is always right there when I did him”

This was Warren’s first attempt at the stunt move, and it will probably be the last time he tries it.
