Hawkins headed to the pros
Lots of little boys dream of one day becoming the professional athlete they read about or see on t.v. For Donald Hawkins of Tunica, it’s no longer a dream. On Saturday, May 10, Hawkins committed to the Philadelphia Eagles and will wear number 78 next season.
In an interview on Tuesday, May 13, Hawkins said it had been a busy three days, but the team and the city had been very welcoming. He had previously met with team representatives in Austin, where he attended the University of Texas. He’d also participated in the Eagles’ Pro Day workout and said it just seemed like a natural fit.
