1st-Team All-Big Ten Defensive Lineman Tackles Tree to the Ground

Now that’s a tackle… Anthony Zettel showed off his somewhat unorthodox off-season routine, by tackling a tree to the ground[1]. I guess there’s not much that can stop a determined First-team All-Big Ten defensive lineman.


The Penn State Nittany Lion showed off the strength in his 6’4″, 278-pound frame by tackling a tree to the ground. The most impressive part might be the fact he didn’t hurt himself trying to do so.

With 17 tackles for loss, eight sacks and three interceptions last season for Penn State, it seems there’s not a lot Zettel can’t do.

Now that’s a form of tree-hugging I think most of us can get behind. The video also makes it pretty clear: I’m never going to make it as a football player.
