It turns out that former CFL defensive lineman Trent Corney has become an insanely jacked YouTube sensation.

The native of Brockville, Ont. was a first-round pick in the 2016 CFL Draft out of the University of Virginia. He played three seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and recorded 30 total tackles and four sacks in 37 games, though he missed almost the entire 2018 season due to injury.

The six-foot-three defender weighed 260 pounds during his tenure in the CFL but has since ballooned to over 300 pounds as he pursues amateur bodybuilding. He has posted some truly shocking images on his Instagram page in which he sports a physique reminiscent of the Incredible Hulk.

Corney has become a mainstay on a popular YouTube channel called JustDustin, which is headlined by Canadian content creator Dustin Wilson. The channel has 5.14 million subscribers and produces weekly videos that each garner millions of views.

One of the channel’s most popular videos features a competition between Wilson and Corney to see who can break into a fire-proof, high-security safe the fastest to win a $10,000 prize. 7.6 millions people have watched Corney destroy a baseball ball, spear, and cast iron skillet as he successfully smashes his way into his safe to win the money.

Whether its opposing quarterbacks, high-security safes, panes of glass, sheets of ice, prison cells, layers of metal or armoured school buses (seriously), Corney clearly has a knack for using his extraordinary frame to cause damage.
