It wasn't that John Guerrero didn't want to play Pop Warner football as a youngster, there just wasn't room for him. Guerrero, USC's starting left offensive tackle, says he has been big as long as he can remember. Big as in being a 300-pound lineman as a high school senior at Oxnard. The lineman is now trying to get down to the 300-pound range as he labors in two-a-day drills on the USC campus. Guerrero reported at 335 pounds last week and he says he now weighs 329 pounds and counting.
