Usually when I think of a punter, I always think he is the most non athletic player on the team. Maybe they are a little flabby, or at the very least they aren’t the most defined dude on the team.
In the case of New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford, I am so wrong about my assumption.
Weatherford is the Hercules of punters. He looks like he came out of a weight lifting magazine.
ESPN’s Rick Reilly sat down with Weatherford to learn about his work out regimen and talk about what drives him. That’s not the good part of this video.
Near the end of the video, Reilly goes on to say that Weatherford will do something no man has done and bench press him. That didn’t go as planned.
Skip to the 4:15 mark in the video to see Weatherford drop Reilly.
I know bench pressing a body is tougher than your normal everyday bench press but it’s still funny to watch Weatherford drop Reilly.
