Typically when a 6-foot-7, 270 pound offensive lineman says he's athletic hemeans he's able to move well for his size. For 2013 lineman Colin McGovern (New Lenox, Ill./Lincoln-Way West) saying he's athletic includes the fact he is a pitcher for his high school team with a fastball in the low 80s.

"I wanted to lift weights [instead of playing baseball], but it came down to if I didn't play baseball I'd have to get a job, so I played baseball," he said.

Smart choice. Naturally questions about comparisons with the "Big Unit" Randy Johnson, the 6-foot-10 former MLB pitcher, arose. However, McGovern is more focused on football than other sports, and he happens to excel at it.
