Typically, Fat Guy Touchdowns rarely are produced from the offensive side of the ball. Instead, they usually come when a defensive lineman scoops a fumble or picks off a pass and rumbles all the way to the house. But this was no ordinary Fat Guy Touchdown.

The CFL’s matchup between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and BC Lions produced an awesome (and rare) planned Fat Guy TD this weekend when the Roughriders drew up a goal line play for offensive lineman Dan Clark (6’2, 310 lbs), who refused to let his chance for glory slip through his fingers.

Clark made a great, athletic catch on a toss from backup quarterback Tino Sunseri – who replaced injured starter Darian Durant – in the second half that helped spark a 20-16 comeback victory for the Roughriders. Interestingly enough, the toss was Sunseri’s first career touchdown pass in the CFL.

I guarantee he didn’t envision it would come down in the hands of an offensive lineman but, hey, that’s what we like to call a pleasant surprise.
