If you have been paying attention to the NFL this season, you have probably noticed all of the touchdown celebrations going on around the league. Prior to the season, the NFL decided players would once again be allowed to celebrate a touchdown without being penalized.
Teams around the league have taken advantage of this and have been celebrating like it’s their job. In fact, it’s very clear that teams are actually taking the time to practice their celebrations before each game.
One of the best performing teams this season, at least in terms of celebrations, has been the Detroit Lions. Whether it was Marvin Jones and company performing double dutch or Golden Tate dropping “The People’s Elbow,” the Lions have certainly taken pride in their touchdown celebrations.

Check it out.
Ever wonder where teams go to get help creating their TD celebrations?

And that is exactly what Avila has done.
