He might not be the most nimble quarterback, but 350-pound offensive guard Sebastian Tretola got the job done when Arkansas asked him to be their passer on a second quarter end zone trip Saturday.
It began when the Razorbacks lined up for a short field goal attempt from the 11-yard line of Alabama-Birmingham. The offense suddenly separated itself, with multiple players spreading out to the right sideline.
The Blazers shifted their defense mostly to that side as a result.
So when Trevolta went into motion, then stopped and lined up at the quarterback spot, it's not surprising that the vast majority of Alabama-Birmingham's players simply froze and were unsure of what to do.
Shifting right, Arkansas' heaviest player on the roster faked quickly to the right, taking his drop-back steps as if he had been doing them his whole life.

Then, as two defenders zoned in on him, Trevolta took a step back and lofted a touch pass to long snapper Alan D'Appollonio, who reeled it in for the deceptively easy six-yard score.

That score put Arkansas up 28-0 at that point.
College football hasn't seen a big man toss touchdown passes in such entertaining fashion since Kentucky's Jared Lorenzen, who actually started at quarterback from 2000 to 2003, while weighing 320 pounds. But even more importantly, now the accolades can start rolling in for Trevolta, college's newest most efficient quarterback.
After all, the junior is completing 100 percent of his career passes — and each one of those has gone for a score as well.
