Mark Weisman: The Art of the Stiff Arm

Iowa’s Mark Weisman ran for 217 yards and three touchdowns in a losing effort for Iowa on Saturday, but several of his runs featured some amazing stiff-arm shoves. Watch three clips in this post including a powerful run up the middle where he just flattens the defender.

The run in the next clip may be less of a stiff arm but Weisman still uses his upper body to stampede into the end zone.

Weisman is a hoss. Man can play. Ferentz is lucky to have found him.

Mark Weisman is awesome! Put in the hard work and now he is working people on the field, some of the most impressive looking power runs I can remember since Coker but think Weisman has better lateral move and a better understanding of using leverage and angle to push move or plow secondary players out of the way and the O-Line and Rogers are clearing the way.
