TIGER KICKOFF: Five things you didn't know about Justin Britt

Friday, September 2, 2011 | 6:00 a.m. CDT

Five things you didn't know about left tackle Justin Britt.

  • He was a big baby. At 11 pounds, 8 ounces, Britt was the largest baby to be born at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital in Fort Campbell, Ky.

  • He talks a big game when it comes to video games. Britt claims to have gone undefeated in 10 straight seasons with Missouri on NCAA Football ‘12 at the game’s highest difficulty level: Heisman. However, he says he only won the national championship in the final nine, “getting screwed,” as he put it, by the BCS in his first season.

  • He was a state champion wrestler in high school. Britt’s wrestling career began in sixth grade and culminated in an undefeated senior season, where he won the conference, district and state championships for the heavyweight division. He placed sixth at the National High School Coaches Association Senior National Wrestling Championships.

  • He has a pregame jam. And it’s not a headbanger. It’s Diamond Rio’s “I Believe.”

  • His favorite pregame meal is meatless. Britt says while he loves the chicken and steak the team has access to before games, “I have to have that macaroni and green beans.”
