Former Clemson standout Deandre "Nuk" Hopkins will try to raise awareness on domestic violence issues as he will wear a custom pair of Adidas football cleats against the Green Bay Packers in Lambeau Field on Sunday afternoon.

The NFL finally got something right as this week they will allow NFL players to wear custom cleats for the charity of their choice without being fined by the league.

“One of the great NFL traditions is how our players passionately support important causes in their communities and around the globe every year,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. “They are incredibly creative by nature so we are not surprised how they are seizing the opportunity this week with inspiring expressions of their charitable commitments on their cleats, online and through social media.”
