One of the most meaningful moments of my entire life was attending the Revie Sorey All-Pro Football Camp as a coach back when I was a ripe 17 years of age.
For those of you unfamiliar with Revie, he was an O-linesman for the Bears and blocked for Walter Payton.
Back then, it was the Revie Sorey-Ryan Wetnight All Pro camp. Now it's the John Gilmore - Revie Sorey camp, so essentially they swapped out slow crappy white TE for slow crappy black TE. Regardless, it's the exact same camp and it's an awesome way to spend a week. I played ball with Luke Butkis and a few D1 studs, I caught passes from Erik Kramer, I watched Singletary run through drills and I even got mistaken for a legitimate college athlete (which I wasn't).
My most memorable moment at camp, was sitting around late at night and shooting the shit with Revie. Let me tell you, this is one of the nicest guys I've ever met.
Additionally, he has abnormally monstrous calves.
Like, insanely girthy tree trunk appendages than keep him anchored to the center of the earth.
If you look at the photo above, that's Revie with a legitimate NFL player who spends countless hours in the gym and probably leg presses a few thousand pounds. Revie's calves make his calves look like 2 needle dicks. It's absolutely insane.
So... 2 thoughts:
1) If you read this and are 10-18, you should definitely go here.
2) If you've ever seen a person with larger (at least mainly muscle) calves, I'd like to know about it.
