Devin Hester is among the most excitable players to ever play in the NFL. Whether it was a punt or kick return, Hester could change the outlook with just one explosive cut. While Hester’s playing days may be numbered, his two young sons are starting to take on the family business.

Hester, who returned to practice with the Atlanta Falcons this week after turf toe put him on the injured reserve list, has spent a lot of time with his sons as they play flag football. Like any proud parent, Hester has been uploading some of their highlights to his Instagram account.

The older of the two Hester sons, Devin Jr., has become a bit of a star on his dad’s Instagram and for good reason.

DJ isn’t the only Hester starting off his young football career with some explosive plays. Hester’s younger son Dray, who is only three, is running past kids a few years older than him.

For as intense as college recruiting can be, the two young Hesters are obviously a little young to start thinking about that. However, it is fun to not only see them enjoying the game, but their father is having so much fun cheering them on.

Whenever Hester does return, Falcons fans hope he can recreate some of those moves his kids were showing off.
