Tony Picard is a 400-pound high school football player from White Swan High School in Washington State.

This senior's highlight reel shows him barreling over three and four defenders at a time and has 2 million hits on YouTube.

Picard and his coach spoke with "New Day" on Tuesday and the young man came off  modest, saying he didn’t even make the video himself.

Now that he's gotten  all the attention, the teenager says, "It’s crazy,  it’s shocking. I didn’t even make the video. Someone else made it, I saw it one day on Facebook, and was like, 'wow where did this come from?’"

His coach, Andrew Bush, calls the boy non-traditional. Bush says, "he looked athletic" so he reevaluated the player as lineman to make him running back.
