You have probably never heard of Brock Hekking. A junior linebacker at the University of Nevada, Hekking tallied 75 tackles and eight sacks in 2012 and was placed on the Lombardi Award (nation’s top linebacker or lineman) watch list entering this season, but that’s not what has caught the Internet’s attention. Hekking boasts an incredible blonde mullet, inspired by former Seahawks linebacker Brian Bosworth, that would not be out of place in an ’80s hair band. The mullet will take the national stage when Hekking’s Wolf Pack travel to Florida State this Saturday, and Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston, an early Heisman Trophy candidate, is reportedly very excited to catch a glimpse of it. Check it out for yourself in the photos below. @jmnpb @SBNationCFB @DavidHaleESPN he wasn't kidding. http://t.co/DYNIQgXTF5— Matt Charles (@matthewpcharles) September 11, 2013 Meet Nevada DE Brock Hekking...his mullet is the STUFF OF LEGENDS (via @NevadaWolfpack) » http://t.co/74DEg2NRgv—   (@SportsNation) September 12, 2013 Jameis Winston vs. Brock Hekking's mullet: everyone wins. sbnation.com/lookit/2013/9/… http://t.co/r5RHsdzHM1— SB Nation CFB (@SBNationCFB) September 11, 2013 Filed under: College Football, Headlines, NESN University, Offbeat, Zack Cox
