Foltz name to "The Freak List"

Every year around this time, Bruce Feldman (who is now at CBS because ESPN didn't like him exposing Craig James as the douche-bag that he is to the entire world) puts out a list of the top 10 athletes in college football who display incredible athleticism or ridiculous work ethic in the weight room.  Coming in at #9 on this year's "Freak List" is TCU's own Blaize Foltz.  Here's Feldman's assessment of the senior right guard:

The Horned Frogs O-line had a Freak a few years back in agile giant Marcus Cannon (a 350-pounder who could do a double front flip off a diving board.) Foltz, a first-team All-MWC guard in 2011, doesn't possess that kind of flexibility, but he's probably as strong as any man in college football. The 6-4, 310-pound movement science major benches 580 pounds, squats 800, incline benches 530 and has cleaned 430. "Honestly, we've gotten to a point where we stop him now for safety sake," says TCU O-line coach Eddie Williamson. "He could probably do even more than what those numbers indicate if we didn't."

No crap. That article makes him sound like Larry Allen. I always thought the under-reported story of the Rose Bowl was how good TCU's offensive line played. Hopefully this year he leads the line to level of play again.
