Patrick House, a former offensive lineman at Delta State, was last to step on the scales last night at The Biggest Loser finale. The Brandon native needed to have lost 177 pounds to win the $250,000 prize.
When the numbers finally stopped tumbling, the former 400 pounder had lost 182, down to 218 to win the prize. House, who now lives in Vicksburg, plans to to move to South Carolina where he will teach at a school for morbidly obese teens. He plans to share his message of health and exercise and how he overcame his obesity as part of being a teach and a coach at the school.
But, first, House’s former football team, Delta State plays Minnesota-Duluth Saturday for the NCAA Division II national championship.
If you believe in karma, you gotta believe the Statesmen will win their second-ever national championship.
Congratulations to House and good luck Statesmen, uh Okra.
