In the land of abnormally massive human beings, we finally have a normal-sized guy come to the podium. In fact, Oregon State PK Alexis Serna qualifies as being small — even away from the rather large standards of professional football. Serna measured in at 5-6 ½, 170 pounds. Even more than just his stature, he looked like a kid facially, as well.

It’s awfully hard not to root for Serna. A former walk-on for the Beavers, Serna has made a remarkable transformation from goat to legitimate NFL prospect. In his first career game, Serna missed three extra points in an overtime loss to LSU in Death Valley, and was about as vilified in Corvallis as any athlete could be. Now he’s on the verge of making a living kicking the pigskin on Sundays.

He's still a fringe draft prospect, but this guy obviously has the resolve of a champ to bounce back the way he did.
