Seattle Seahawks tight end Luke Willson has a signature touchdown celebration where he stretches out his arm and lets out a scream.
Where did Willson get his celebration? Manchester United star Wayne Rooney.
Rooney celebrated a bicycle kick against rival Manchester City back in 2001 for the go-ahead score.
“I was watching that with my roommates and we were laughing and going nuts and I said, ‘The next time I score, I’m doing that,’” Willson told Steve Kelley of Seahawks.com. “Then we all kind of had a pact, where whenever we scored at Rice we would do something similar to Rooney’s celebration.”
Willson will attempt to bust out the Rooney celebration against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX on Feb. 1 in Glendale, Ariz.
