ENOLA -- When the Central Penn Piranha makes a house call, the objective is to smother you.
Piranha players and coaches simply refer to John Taylor as "House." He's built, however, more like a mansion: Taylor stands 6'11" and claims to weigh 500 lbs.
Makes you wonder what the other big guys on the team say when they line up across from him for the very first time?
"I said, 'Who is this man blocking out the sun?'" recalls offensive lineman Vincent McDuffy, who's 6'5" and weighs 372 lbs.
We'll tell you who he is.
"House" is possibly the largest player in the history of football -- at any level.
"Don't run my way; pretty much that's what I do (on defense)," said Taylor.
That's a simple philosophy from someone who makes things very complex. Taylor is a defensive lineman for the Piranha, one of the most successful teams in the Gridiron Developmental Football League (GDFL); a minor league consisting of roughly 40 clubs, stretching from Pennsylvania to Florida.
"House" has a simple job on defense -- take up space. An offense can't block, what an offense can't see. "If they can't see the linebackers, they don't where they coming from, the offensive linemen," said Ron Kerr, the owner and head coach of the Piranha. "He has to be double-teamed. He's too big not to be."
Taylor's weight is listed as 465 pounds on the team's website; yet he says he was 500 lbs. the last time he was on a scale.
His #71 jersey is size 6XL.
Don't think that just because he's so big, he's all-powerful, though. He's quick to point out that he's not.
"There's sometimes when people expect super human things (from me)," added Taylor. "I'm still a human."
In fact, he spends most games on the sidelines, waiting for his number to be called; the Piranha primarily uses Taylor in short-yardage situations, when the other teams needs to pick up only a few, tough yards.
Taylor told CBS 21 News Sports Director Jason Bristol he is concerned about his weight and how it may affect his overall health as he grows older. Taylor, 35, plans on losing weight when his football career is over.
He also said one NFL team scouted him while he was at Virginia Union, but the team believed he was too heavy. Taylor previously played for the New Jersey Lions before joining the Piranha.
Central Penn's next game is Saturday, September 1 at East Pennsboro High School. The team's first opponent in the divisional round of the GDFL playoffs has yet to be determined.
Needless to say, everyone who comes in contact with "House," never forgets him.
"One time, I actually fell and he fell on top of me," said center Nate Gibson, a thirteen-year veteran. "I could have sworn I had two broken ribs."
That was a painful house call, obviously. But Taylor, the largest football player of all-time, says scenarios like that can be avoided.
"You got to catch me moving in one direction," said Taylor, describing what it takes to block him. "You're not going to straight up just move me most times. But if you catch me moving in one direction, you can push me in that way; but other than that..."
Other than that, it takes an awful lot to move this "House" off its foundation.
