TAPPAHANNOCK, Va. — Essex High School may be in the small town of Tappahannock, but it is home to one of the biggest football players in the country.

Dondre Harris stands 7-feet tall and weighs 380 pounds. Harris plays defensive line for the Essex Trojans football team.

Essex coach John Fulks told Harris has not yet gotten a lot of attention from college football coaches, however MaxPreps writer Stephen Spiewak said that could change if Harris has a “strong senior season.”
