Browning Wynn, some guy that wants to be in the NFL, and was some big wig player at VA Tech college. I think he's playing for some NFL minor league team or something now. I dated him in high school, but he was such a PRICK

He once looked better, before they probably gave him steriods out the ass. His neck used to be of normal size.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!
