Lions Linebacker DeAndre Levy Calls Breaking JoePa’s Leg “Proudest Moment”

Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy is an interesting man. A former Wisconsin standout, he’s gone on to have a successful NFL career since being drafted in 2009. Known for plenty of highlight reel plays, one particularly infamous incident sticks out as his own personal crowning achievement.

In a 2006 contest against the Lions, Levy went to tackle a ballcarrier near the Penn State sideline. In hitting the runner, he also propelled into Joe Paterno and broke his leg as a result. Most wouldn’t be proud of such an unfortunate accident, but Levy thinks otherwise, calling it his “proudest moment in college.”

“That dirtbag, man,” Levy said as he called the play his proudest collegiate moment. “We’ve gotta stop prioritizing sports over humanity. Just because somebody can throw a football or coach football, they’re excluded from the wicked acts.”

Levy’s comments came during an interview with Men’s Journal, which took an introspective look into the curious life of the star linebacker who certainly isn’t afraid to hold anything back.

The Lions play a Jacksonville Jaguars team that fields three Penn Staters — including two on defense — this Sunday.
