Garrett Gilkey – “Who’s Laughing Now”

I stumbled upon this story by Elizabeth Merrill on and thought I would share. If you haven’t read this before, it’s about draft prospect, Garrett Gilkey, from Chadron State. Gilkey was a victim of bullying at Sandwich High School (yeah… sandwich…) before he became the 6-7, 320 lbs behemoth he is now.

It is a fascinating story about someone who went through a very rough experience and someone who now has the opportunity to play in the NFL and the potential to be successful.

The story can be found here – “Who’s laughing now? Garrett Gilkey”.

Below are some of the highlights of Gilkey at Chardon State.
