Arena football fans might have come to cheer for the Arizona Rattlers, but they yelled the loudest for dance choreographer Oscar Hernandez.

In the middle of a halftime performance by the Rattlers' cheerleading squad the Sidewinders, the women received another player on the field who just wanted to dance.

Although he wore the uniform and sported the size of a linebacker, the 6'2", 280-pound man was actually the one who composed the dance. He proceeded to shock the audience with his stellar moves and his surprising splits.

Sporting News profiled the dancer after his YouTube success:

Hernandez is the man behind many dances you may have already seen, even if he looks like he should be running into and over people instead of telling them where to stand and step. He's been dancing since age 5, cheered and danced at Apollo High School in Glendale, Ariz., and in 2002, broke into the business as a dancer and choreographer with the Phoenix Suns. He's never played a down of football, but still gets mistaken for someone who has.

Hernandez has worked with dozens of professional teams since 2002 — the Nuggets, Warriors, Sonics, Blazers, Pistons, Cowboys, Arizona Cardinals and Lions among them. He helped choreograph the 2009 NBA All-Star Game halftime show in Phoenix.

Here's a closer view of his action:

Ohio state football fans walk 19 miles to spell out the state.

An Ohio State football fan doesn't need to walk 19 miles to prove their love, but it doesn't hurt.

That's what Redditor orweezy and some friends decided to do. But they didn't do it for the mileage, they did it to spell out the four most important letters to them.

Orweezy told his story Aug. 17.

My coworker friends and thought it would be cool to start off the football season by mapping and walking the Ohio Script this past weekend and using the stadium as the "I" dotting.

...We got like 8 miles into it and thought.... "you know this would have been better if we biked it" It took us 6 and a half hours of walking but we made a few bar stops so from 6:30am through 2:45pm. We were doing a work competition about fitness and the metrics used was time, so we walked everywhere and I think we just carried it over. I would rather bike it next time for sure.

The Ohio State Buckeyes will kick off their season on Sept. 7.
