Go Laney Eagles!
In the fifth round of the 2009 NFL draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected running back Frank Summers of UNLV. 5'9" tall, 245 pounds, his nickname is "Frank the Tank".
Mr. Summers spent two years at Laney College in Oakland, his hometown, before transferring to UNLV. I saw him play against community college opponents, but my general impression is that Frank the Tank likes to hit people, and often when he does, they fall down and he keeps running.
In the interests of full disclosure, I should say that Frank the Tank took statistics from me at Laney and he passed the class.
Best wishes to him in his future endeavors. As an NFL draftee, he has already proven that he is a high outlier, as we say in the statistics biz.
