A.J. Hawk happily grants fan’s request to be tackled

Friday July 17th, 2015

A.J. Hawk has 628 career tackles in the NFL, with all of those stops coming against other professional football players, so what would happen if Hawk unleashed on a regular citizen?

One man decided he had to find out, so he approached Hawk at the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe and asked the linebacker to take him out as if he were a receiver coming across the middle in the NFL.

Hawks happily agrees to the fans odd request and plows through him as if he were a receiver hung out to dry.

This is becoming a tradition for Hawk and the fan, as they also met up in 2014 and NFL'er took the man to the ground with a form tackle.
