When Joe Garten was a high school freshman, he could barely bench press 150 pounds. He was an ordinary-looking 5-foot-10, 180-pound lineman. Size wouldn't have helped matters much, though. He didn't know how to play football. As a senior at Valencia High School, Garten grew to 6-3, 235 and seemed to never miss a block. All the while, the college scouts paid him no mind. They were more interested in the record-setting running back who ran behind him.
