Michael Garcia - September 27, 2012

Patrick Willis of the San Francisco 49ers is one of the most feared linebackers in the league. He's fast, he's built like a truck and he loves to knock the crap out of ball carriers.

How did Willis become such a ferocious ball hawk? Dealing with adversity as a kid and finding football as the perfect outlet for unleashing his frustrations apparently. 

This new campaign from Duracell called 'Trust Your Power' gives us a glimpse into Patrick's childhood, and adds in highlights of bone crunching hits from his high school days and his college years at Ole Miss. You see some of the plays that made the Niners scoop him up with the 11th pick in the 2007 draft.

The goal is get others to share their stories. Duracell will donate a dollar for each one to help send underprivileged kids to sports camps. You never know, the next Patrick Willis might get the extra help he needs.
