Suh has playful moment with young fan at training camp

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (WXYZ) -- The Lions Ndamukong Suh is a tough, hard-nosed guy whose ten sacks as a rookie last year took him to a Pro Bowl.

But in his time in Detroit, he's shown a fun, softer side that has helped him gain over 100,000 Twitter followers and a legion of fans loyal to his every move.

Before Tuesday's full-pad practice in Allen Park, Suh took the time to walk onto the field with a lucky young fan, which is a Lions camp tradition.

What followed brought plenty of fun and playfulness.

Suh signed an autograph for a young fan, then handed him his autographed item. As the fan walked away, Suh jokingly chased after him, sending the youngster into a full out sprint.

Quarterbacks see that speed all the time, but have had a tougher time outrunning the Nebraska product than the youn fan did.
