Ohio safety Javon Hagan keeps sneakily stealing opponents' towels (Video)

Many college football players — despite wearing gloves — also keep a towel tucked into their pants. Some do it to keep their hands (or gloves) and the ball dry, obviously, but some do it just for style.

Whatever the reason, Ohio safety Javon Hagan has no time for any of it.

During Ohio’s win over Kansas on Saturday, Hagan just straight up stole the towel of Jayhawks receiver Quan Hampton. And we only know about it because he posted a video of it on Twitter. Too funny.

Some will probably get mad about this because that’s what people do these days, but, to me, it’s one of the funniest things I’ve seen on the field so far this season.

And apparently this isn’t the first time Hagan, a redshirt sophomore, has done this. On Monday, he also retweeted a video of himself snagging a towel from a Troy player in last year’s Dollar General Bowl. He captioned his tweet, “I really been on this towel wave since last year guys.”


Hagan also claims he snagged the towel of Western Michigan wideout Corey Davis, a first-round draft pick of the Tennessee Titans, last fall.

MAC opponents already had their head on a swivel with Hagan on the field considering he was the MAC Freshman of the Year in 2016. Now, they’ll have to keep their eyes on Hagan even after the whistle blows or else you could be on the lookout for a new towel.
