DeAngelo Williams Wants His Facebook Fans To Create His Next Touchdown CelebrationBy: Josh Wolford - August 9, 2012
You can feel the excitement in the air as the NFL preseason gets underway. The NFL preseason serves two purposes for fans; First, it quenches the football drought that they’ve been experiencing all summer. And is also signals that we’re only a month away from the actual NFL season.
This Saturday, the Carolina Panthers tackle the Houston Texans, and Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams wants to make the game special – by performing one your your touchdown celebrations.
Williams has posted a video to Facebook, asking his fans to post videos of their own endzone dances. He says that the best one will get its moment in primetime, as he’ll perform it if he scores a touchdown during the preseason.
Here’s what he had to say in the video:
In light of Saturday’s first game against the Houston Texans, I want to run this. For four weeks I’m gonna get a chance to choose between you guys. I want you to put it under my comment box, I wanna get you guys involved in the game. This is what I’m gonna do: I’m gonna give you an opportunity, right now, underneath. I want you to comment and post a link of you doing your best touchdown celebration. The best one , if I score on Saturday or throughout this preseason, I’ll do your endzone celebration.
Hundreds of comments have poured in, but not everyone is fully understanding DWill’s request. A lot of people are posting videos to generic dances, and there are quite a few suggestion for “The Carlton.” He does have some originals pouring in, although I can’t attest to their quality:
But hey, anything to spice up the preseason is cool in my book.[h/t AllFacebook]
