Japanese sumo champion chases American football dream
Associated Press - Aug 16
Hidetora Hanada, Colorado State’s newest defensive lineman, was an amateur sumo wrestler back in Japan. The 6-foot-1, 280-pound Hanada rose up the ranks to become a Yokozuna, or grand champion. Instead of developing the career in what is considered Japan's national sport, the 21-year-old decided to chase his dream of playing American football.
