Not saying he was the TOUGHEST guy i played against, but back in 1978, i was a soph, and got to play a few plays at the end of the game against VERNON BROADNAX, from Xenia, OH(not the tornadoes, but we called them that after the tornado killed 120 people or so in 1974) SPorts illustrated wrote him up as the largest football player in america. At that time, he was 6'6, 415 lbs. I played three plays against him. Game was already over, so i didnt really go at him(or away from him) but we had 2 Division I all state TACKLES on our team, Rob Taylor(Northwestern, and 12 years with the TB Bucs and KC Chiefs) and Jim Schuman(Ball State, NY GIANTS) who double teamedhim all game and didnt move him an inch. That was ONE BIG DUDE. I tackled his BRO, Vaughn Broadnax, 2 years later(Ohio State, then busted in NFL) Dude was a fullback in HS, 6'3, 250 lbs, and he crumpled my legs aka Lorenzo Neal used to do.
