Do the right thing, Texans. You’re a massive dumpster fire organization, but the right thing would be to honor mother Phyllis Pena, who put her body on the line as some punk peeping Tom (allegedly) tried to get through the defensive line and hit the open field.
As you can see in a police dashcam video from the Lake Jackson, Texas Police Department, there was open daylight for 19-year-old Zane Hawkins, who thought he was about to get away before — OUT OF NOWHERE — Phyllis blindsided the piece of garbage right into the pavement.
“First instinct was just to make sure he didn’t go any further,” Phyllis told KPRC-2 Houston.
Let’s go to the footage:
“The cop fist-bumped me and he was like, ‘Hey, so I heard the Texans are looking for a new linebacker,’” Pena said of NFL Combine footage.
The good news here is that Zane was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, evading arrest and resisting arrest, and there could be more charges to follow.
Mama bear has spoken, and let’s just say you’re not going to see a better tackle this week. Show some appreciation, Texans. Change the narrative around your organization. Bring her into the practice facility and let Phyllis hit some tackling dummies. Let’s spin this into a positive.
“My next step is to try out for the NFL ,” Phyllis wrote on Facebook.

While we’re on the topic of criminals getting lit up with form tackles, never forget one of the classics out in West Covina, California in 2017. It’s still a piece of art.
