UCLA do-everything linebacker / running back Myles Jack threw on a helmet and shoulder pads to help a fellow UCLA student out recently.

Danny Siegel, who is running for USAC General Representative, paired with Jack and put on a helmet and shoulder pads himself to prove that he’s worthy of winning the student vote by taking a hit from Jack. They even laid out a nice soft landing pad for him, but he never got to use it.

At the end of the clip, after lighting up Siegel, Jack proclaims, “If this guy can take a hit from me, he can definitely be your next Gen. Rep.”

It’s a rather interesting campaign strategy by Siegal. You’ve got to give the guy credit for being gutsy and creative that’s for sure.

With the presidential election right around the corner, here’s to hoping a high profile candidate¬†grabs JJ Watt and does something similar on the national scene. For that, I pledge my vote.
