Baylor big man LaQuan McGowan is ‘slimming down’

We can all remember Baylor Bears tight end LaQuan McGowan, who tips the scales at more than 400 pounds. McGowan is the man responsible for this gem — which was the best fat guy touchdown in recent memory.

Well, now we should all shed a tear… kind of. Because, as it turns out, McGowan is starting to lose some weight as he gears up for the season.

Don’t worry, though, his “slimming down” still leaves him over 400 pounds.

Love how Art Briles said LaQuan McGowan has "slimmed down" to get to 6-8, 403. The huge #Baylor TE will be a cult hero this season.

That is great news for all.

Nothing sets the internet on fire like a big man rumbling down the field and into the endzone, so let’s hope Baylor and head coach Art Briles have plenty of plans to get McGowan the ball. It would just make the world a better place.
