Former NFL kick returner and wide receiver Devin Hester holds the NFL records for most total return touchdowns and most punt return touchdowns and was the first person ever to return the opening kick of the Super Bowl back for a touchdown.
He was one of the most electric players ever to grace a football field and someday hopes to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
“For my career, I would say that would be the icing on the cake for me,” Hester said at this year’s Bears100 Celebration. “Every player that plays football wants to be one of the best to ever do it. You get into that Hall of Fame vote and you get to be in the Hall of Fame, you get to say you’re one of the best to ever play in the National Football League.”
Hester won’t be eligible for the Hall of Fame until 2022, but even if he doesn’t get the call, if his 6-year-old son Drayton Hester continues on his current path in football, he might just give the family another shot at the honor someday.
On Monday, Hester posted several videos of his son Dray snapping numerous kids’ ankles at a Florida football camp.
“Great day Dray at Top 100 central Florida camp, all your hard work is starting to pay off. Now we see what you can do, but for me my job is to make sure the next time you see him. It’s a lot better then the first,” Hester wrote.
“Draaaayy-Day starting to come out his shell now!!!” wrote Hester alongside another video of his son at the camp on which someone superimposed the words “Ankle Bully.”
Soooo, is it too early for the Bears to sign him? Just wondering…
