Shawn Oakman: The (gigantic) man behind the meme

Shawn Oakman burst onto the national scene last year not only for his play on the field, but also because he made a darn good Internet meme.

The guy carries a python everywhere. There are reasons for everything he does — but it's also easy to see why he became such an instant Internet sensation.

Bleacher Report delves into the depths of Oakman's personality, what makes him tick and what his thoughts are on becoming a massive star in college football overnight. Take a look.
