Larry Mazyck (6'7/340) is a massive left tackle for his Iowa Western Community College football team. He's a virtual wall protecting his quarterback's blind side.
Watching him engulf would be pass rushers, if his size is the standard roster exaggeration expected out of football teams, it certainly isn't by much. Mazyck plays high, which is to be expected, but he gets good knee bend in his stance and he has excellent feet and slide step. He uses his hands well, and once he's locked on to a defender, forget about it, said defender isn't going anywhere. He's naturally strong (and big) enough that despite the loss of leverage, he is able to withstand the bull rush from shorter, more compact defensive ends.
He'll need to improve his pad level and the strength through his core to reach his potential as a drive blocker, but it was almost humorous watching several Georgia Military Academy defenders continually run into him, only to be swallowed up in a sea of white uniform.
Originally from the D.C. area, Mazyck is committed to play college football at Maryland next year. He's listed as a redshirt sophomore at Iowa Western, which means he'll have two years of eligibility for the Terps.
