Alabama's Bo Scarbrough is 228 pounds and stands 6-foot-2.
As Clemson learned in Monday's national championship game, he also happens to play running back, and when he gets a head of steam, the list of willing tacklers shrinks in a hurry. 30 of his 90 rushes in the regular season went for first downs or touchdowns.
He scored twice in the first half of Monday's game and ran for 93 yards on just 16 carries before he suffered an ankle injury late in the third quarter. He went into the locker room and hasn't returned.
On his first touchdown, Scarbrough juked a pair of defenders before dragging a third into the end zone.
Plenty of others took notice of Alabama's secret weapon. Among them: Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, whose alma mater, Michigan State, faced the Crimson Tide's wrath in last year's playoff by way of a 38-0 semifinal victory.

Scarbrough has insisted he plans on returning to Alabama in 2017, where a season-long featured role in the offense might await, but Cousins has done OK for himself, despite his days of bowl cuts and battles with acne as a high schooler back in Michigan, when he signed with Michigan State as a three-star prospect.
Of course, that didn't stop the Twitter memes from picking up what Cousins was laying down.
And even Lane Kiffin, Alabama's offensive coordinator throughout the entire 2016 season until Nick Saban swapped him out for Steve Sarkisian a week before the title game, put aside any hard feelings against his former employer to make his Bo love public during the title game Monday night.
