I’d like to think it is every offensive lineman’s dream to score a touchdown because, unfortunately, it is an extremely rare occurrence.
I know when I played football when I was younger, as a big guy myself, I always tried to brainstorm what the hell I would do if I happened to miraculously score. It turns out that I wasn’t the only one doing that kind of brainstorming.
The Rice offensive line have an array of elaborate celebrations if a glorious FAT GUY TOUCHDOWN happens. As described by senior Nate Richards, the Owls run a desperation play where the center scores on a play with several laterals that would be run in an end-of-game situation. If that were to ever happen, the offensive line is prepared.
Among the hilarious celebrations include the “fat guy photo booth,” the “leap frog,” a fishing one and a bowling celebration involving the entire offense.
Rice will take on Mississippi State Tuesday in the Liberty Bowl and if, by the grace of God, a Rice offensive lineman somehow scores, we may witness the most magnificent touchdown celebration of all time.
