Rams punter Johnny Hekker is quite the interesting character. Here is the former Oregon State player who was signed by the Rams undrafted in 2012. Hekker recently got bored and challenged his Twitter followers to send him ‘challenges’ to take on. I didn’t know much about the young man, but between the below Jello-O incident and reading his Reddit IAMa (which was entitled,”I am Johnny Hekker, Ginger rookie punter for the St. Louis Rams. AMA”), I will be paying closer attention moving forward. Tweet me a challenge to do today and I’ll try and post a pic of me doing it! If your challenge beats me I’ll post a fail pic. — Johnny Hekker (@JHekker) March 14, 2013 First came the Cinnamon challenge: Next came snorting some Jell-O: Now that I have done some crazy challenges I may start thinking of a weekly challenge and issuing it to my followers for them to conquer. — Johnny Hekker (@JHekker) March 16, 2013   If you want to get to Johnny a bit better make sure to check out the highlights from his recent Reddit IAmA:: [TwitVid, H/T SB Nation] Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
