They call him “Big Snack”. We call him one of the best linemen in the state. As for his nickname, “My uncles gave it to me as a kid. I was chubby and ate a lot of snacks and looked like Casey Hampton (former Steelers nose tackle) and that was his nick name too.”  The East Carolina Pirates are one team who is glad he’s built like a former NFL lineman.
