Sebastian Tretola's infamous 'fat guy touchdown' started on back of menu
One play stands out more than the rest during former Arkansas offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola’s two years with the Razorbacks.
However, it’s not a massive block to pave the way for a touchdown. It’s a pass in the face of pressure off his back foot for a touchdown.
Now, we know where that trick play against UAB on Oct. 25, 2014 came from. Tretola told the media at the NFL Scouting Combine that head coach Bret Bielema sketched this play — a 6-yard touchdown pass to Alan D’Appollonio — on the backside of a menu.

Tretola was named to the First-Team All-SEC squad after this past season. He owns the 12th-best grade among offensive guards in this year’s NFL Draft, according to NFL.com.
