Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews is as well known for his flowing blond locks as he is for his hard-hitting tackles. So much so, that one 5-year-old fan has grown out his own hair to imitate his Packers hero.

On Wednesday, Matthews shared the boy's photos as well as some words of encouragement via Twitter.
