Personal Information:
Force was one of the top power forwards to ever play the game.  He was an absolute beast in the paint.  He gave 100% everytime he stepped on the court.  During his first year of playing professional basketball he average 25 points, 22 rebounds, and 11 blocks in only 15 minutes per game.

Unfortunately his career was cut short when was banned from the game for breaking too many backboards and puncturing balls with his horns.  Force spent the rest of his basketball career traveling the globe speaking to youth about the dangers of breaking backboards.  He now plays an integral role as mascot of the Disciples.  

                                                  ABOUT THE WHITE RHINOCEROS

The White Rhinoceros or Square-lipped Rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) is, behind the
elephant, probably the most massive remaining land animal in the world, along with the Indian Rhinoceros which is of comparable size and some male hippopotamuses. There are two subspecies of White Rhinos; as of 2005, South Africa has the most of the first subspecies, the Southern White Rhino (Ceratotherium simum simum). The population of southern white rhinos is about 14,500, making them the most abundant subspecies of rhino in the world, and the White Rhino the most abundant species.

The White Rhino has a massive body and large head, a short neck and broad chest. This rhino can exceed 3000 kg (6600 pounds), have a head-and-body length of 3.35-4.2 m (11-13.9 feet) and a shoulder height of 150-185 cm (60-73 inches). The record-sized White Rhinoceros was about 4500 kg (10,000 lb).[4]. On its snout it has two horns. The front horn is larger that the other horn and averages 89.9 cm (23.6 inches) in length and can reach 150 cm (59 inches). The White Rhinoceros also has a noticeable hump on the back of its neck which supports its large head. The colour of this animal ranges from yellowish brown to slate grey. The only hair on them is on the ear fringes and tail bristles with little across the body. White Rhinos have the distinctive flat broad mouth which is used for grazing.
