Brock Hekking has a second career in competitive eating if professional football doesn’t work out.

The Chargers reserve linebacker can put food away like no one’s business. Watch what he did in 43 minutes at Phil’s BBQ in San Diego — it’s awe-inspiring:

That’s 21,396 calories in under an hour. That’s the near-caloric equivalent of 38 Big Macs.

Hekking nails the look, too. Joey Chestnut & Co. would surely tremble at the sight of his golden, flowing mullet.
