Larger than Life: Position Series #2

Basketball: The Lost Art of the Low Post

For larger children, oftentimes you are shoved into a sport that you don’t want or even a place where you don’t want to play. Basketball, however, provides a place for those too large to be contained.

The low post, or the area closest to the basket has always been dominated by those who tower above the other players. The post is a place for those who are able to reach higher, be physical, and command attention. This is great for large kids to develop footwork, aggressiveness and to feel that they have a place in athletics.

Quick Meals for People Always on the Go

As students, and more in particular larger people, oftentimes we find ourselves in need of a quick source of food. This may not be the best thing, but all health thoughts aside, we often value quantity or quality. Here are a few options for cheap meals that fill you up, and don”t take long to get.

For only $5 this is a good deal, and it’s also easy to share! This is a top item and the quickness of McDonald’s helps as well.

2. Wendy’s 4 for $4

This is a great deal! The amount of food for $4 is great, and gives variety to a meal that could otherwise be boring.

Corn Dogs are a great quick meal, and the price is helpful, even someone as large as me can only eat 3 corn dogs, so with a low price of $3 tops, this will be very filling.

Larger Than Life: Position Series


As a larger than life person, oftentimes we are shunned from the popular athletic positions, like point guard or quarterback. While oftentimes this is very upsetting for many kids, there are several sports they can still excel in.

One of these positions is in the sport of Football, it is the position of Offensive Lineman.

Offensive Lineman require size, strength, intelligence and a little bit of an attitude. It teaches values such as teamwork, in the way that the position demands 5 people to work together, hand-eye coordination in the way they must block people, and body control and balance. This position can still make a lot of money, but at its core it provides a place for athletes who are larger than life.
