Hutchinson (born August 9, 2000) is an American football defensive end for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League (NFL).
|Born:||August 9, 2000
|Height:||6 ft 7 in (2.01 m)|
|Weight:||264 lb (120 kg)|
|High school:||Divine Child (Dearborn, Michigan)|
|NFL Draft:||2022 / Round: 1 / Pick: 2|
He played college football at Michigan, where he won several awards as a senior in 2021, such as the Ted Hendricks and Lombardi Awards, as well as being named runner-up for the Heisman Trophy. Hutchinson was selected second overall by the Lions in the 2022 NFL Draft.
And as a true freshman at Michigan in 2018, Hutchinson played in all 13 games and had 15 tackles.
He won several awards for his efforts, including the Ted Hendricks Award, Lombardi Award, Lott IMPACT Trophy, and the Chicago Tribune Silver Football.
Aidan Hutchinson’s encore performance drew a standing ovation, racking up three sacks in the Detroit Lions’ 36-27 win on Sunday against the Washington Commanders. That’s a club record for a rookie.
All the sacks came against Carson Wentz in the first half, and the hat trick had a raucous crowd on its feet.
“It’s pretty damn cool,” Hutchinson said in the locker room after the game, “but I think it’s a culmination of efforts.
Every guy on that defensive line, I mean, it’s everyone just doing their jobs and I got a lot of the fruits of it this week. So I’m just blessed that I made the most of my opportunities this week.
It’s a full team effort on that defensive line. Sacks are a very tedious thing, so you need everyone clicking, and I thought we were clicking today.”
The only real blemish from the historic performance was a leg injury that forced Hutchinson from the game in the second half. He received medical attention on the sideline before returning to the field, and played through the final whistle.
He finished with six tackles overall, the most of any front-line player, then said after the game he’s unconcerned about the injury. Detroit travels to Minnesota next week to open divisional play against the Minnesota Vikings.
“Just some football stuff, that’s all,” Hutchinson said of the injury. “We’re going to be all right. But it’s just one of those things you got to grit it out, and that’s what I had to do. … It happens, and it’ll be good.”

Aidan Hutchinson mom
The Detroit Lions recently declared they would select Michigan’s Aidan Hutchinson with the second overall pick with the Instagram account of his mom now viral.
It did not take long for his mother to become the centre of attention instead of him. So, it has happened once more.
Tuesday night saw the premiere of HBO’s Hard Knocks, which should have been about the Detroit Lions but instead featured Hutchinson’s mother as the star.
Hutchinson became famous for himself after he led the team in singing Billie Jean.
The former Michigan Wolverine is positioned to become a breakthrough sensation on this season of “Hard Knocks,” as he sang Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” in front of his colleagues during a meeting, despite the fact that Hutchinson’s family stole the stage during the first night of the NFL Draft.
Hutchinson told his family of the experience and that he was actually pretty pleased with himself that morning and last night. He is glad that it’s over and he is still high.
Nothing has gone right for Michigan against Indiana, and the team received a bit of bad news to start the second half.
Early in the first quarter, defensive lineman Aidan Hutchinson left the game with what appeared to be a lower-body injury
He was down on the field for a bit before leaving in his own power and heading to the locker room.
Unfortunately, it looks like Hutchinson will not be returning to action in the second half against the Hoosiers. Television cameras spotted Hutchinson o ut of pads and in street clothes during the third quarter, likely signaling he is out for the rest of the game.
No official word has been given on Hutchinson’s injury, though it appeared he was wearing a small boot on one foot. Hopefully it is nothing serious as the Wolverines are set to play Wisconsin in Week 4.
