Packers RB AJ Dillion Is Releasing A Children’s Book Inspired By His Amazing Nickname

Fans of Boston College football haven’t really had a ton to root for since the Matt Ryan Era came to an end, and as an unfortunate member of those ranks, I’d argue the “Guys Being Dudes” meme has been the program’s biggest contribution to the world in the past 15 years.

With that said, there have been some occasional bright spots amidst the general darkness.

It seems like there’s a chance Zay Flowers could be selected in the first round of the upcoming NFL Draft, which would make him the latest in a fairly long line of Eagles who managed to make the leap to the pros.

Flowers is easily the most highly-touted offensive prospect to come out of Chestnut Hill since AJ Dillon, the running back who set a number of records at BC before he was scooped up by the Packers in the second round of the draft in 2020.

Dillon has had a bit of trouble coming into his own since arriving with Green Bay, but the man who went viral for absolutely destroying a mascot at a minor league baseball game last year has still been able to hold his own thanks in no small part to the massive legs that have resulted in him adopting the nickname “Quadzilla.”

It appears Dillon drew some inspiration from that moniker while deciding to branch out a bit in the offseason, as the RB recently announced the upcoming release of a children’s book dubbed Quadzilla Finds His Footing that will debut this summer.

According to the publisher’s website, the book will revolve around the eponymous character who “loves spending time with his monster friends but gets discouraged when he struggles to do their favorite activities” and finds a new love when “his friends invite him to try a new game: football!”

Well played, AJ. Well played.
