AJ Dillon is a force of nature when on the field, which is why he has been nicknamed “The Quadfather.”
Making an appearance at a Minor League Baseball game, the Green Bay Packers running back was invited on the field because the Kenosha Kingfins mascot appeared to want the smoke with him.
Both participated in the Oklahoma Drill where they started on their back, with Dillon being the ball carrier. He clearly had the upper hand as he got up and destroyed the mascot, whose head went flying off in the process of being sent to another dimension.
Dillon was selected as one of the “2022 Rising Stars” by the NFL Players Association.
Dillon rushed for a team-high 803 yards and scored seven total touchdowns during a breakout second season in 2021. He’ll likely get even more touches as a sidekick to Aaron Jones in the Packers offense in 2022.
The NFLPA thinks Dillon is “poised to have an instant impact on consumer sales and ultimately rank on the NFLPA Top 50 Players Sales lists in the new season,” per a press release.
“The magic of this list is that it pulls from a variety of data including player sales, fan bases, social media engagement and even fantasy football popularity,” said Steve Scebelo, President of NFL Players Inc. “Combined with their diverse personalities and exciting on-field performances, we forecast players best positioned to move the needle for products and marketing in the upcoming season.”
