Adebayo Akinfenwa was once told that he was too big to play football.
In the coming years though, he defied those odds and used his unbelievable power to forge a respected career for himself.
In arguably one of his biggest achievements to date, Akinfenwa has recently helped current side Wycombe Wanderers to promotion to League One with a clinical season in front of goal.
It's official, made it into @EASPORTSFIFA FUT @efl team of the season. I'm liking this #BeastMode upgrade :muscle::muscle: #TOTS #BMO #ShoutOutMyTeammates #AvailableInPacksFrom6pm pic.twitter.com/fA8OS1jt4N- daRealAAkinfenwa (@daRealAkinfenwa) April 27, 2018
The 35-year-old has scored 18 goals in 45 games this campaign and as a result, the Beast was deservedly included in the PFA League Two Team of the Year.
He has since been rewarded with a new one year contract extension at The Blues.

The striker has built a reputation as one of the strongest players in world football and a picture that emerged after his club came back from behind to win at relegated Chesterfield is genuinely mind blowing.
Akinfenwa himself tweeted out the following picture with the caption: "When your gaffer don't put you on, so you try to squeeze his head like a grape.
Social media certainly had something to say about the sheer size of his arms.
