“I have always been interested in soccer,” DeAndre said according to CBS Houston. “I have actually always wanted to be a goalkeeper.” Hopkins would have been a decent goalie with his large hands, tremendous hand-eye coordination and work ethic.
Hopkins did a famous soccer celebration after a touchdown last season and was handed a unsportsmanlike penalty for his efforts.
“The celebration is called ‘The Dead Fish’,” Hopkins said after the game in September. “It’s highly known in soccer. A lot of soccer players do that after they score a goal. My soccer fans know what the celebration was.”
Mexico is facing rival Honduras on Wednesday, July 1 at NRG stadium.
