Aidan Hutchinson dedicated a record performance to five-year-old leukemia patient Hudson Gazsi

Aidan Hutchinson, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2022 draft, put on a dominant performance on Sunday, inspired by a hero of his own.

Hudson Gazsi, a five-year-old leukemia patient, was a source of fuel for Hutchinson, who paid tribute to the youngster after the game.

“This game is dedicated to Hudson, a kid who was just diagnosed with leukemia,” said Hutchinson after the Lions’ 36-27 win ESPN.

“He’s a big Lions fan, he’s from my area. I sent him a video before the game. He cheered me on.

“I’m just happy to have good games to teach these kids causes. Just create a lot of awareness about such things.’

In the hours leading up to Hutchinson’s record-breaking performance, he sent a video to Gazsi, his Michigan compatriot, urging him to stay strong.

“Just keep pushing yourself, man. Our moms talked a bit and I know I’ll be petting you here soon.

“But in the meantime, just keep pushing through and keep at it.

“I know you’re going through it right now but hopefully if you watch our game on Sunday you’ll find some motivation and keep digging for me and putting on the little black eye to support me.

“And I’ll have you on my game tape on my wrist in a few hours so it’s gonna be a really good time and I can’t wait to meet you man. Come on, lions.”

Hutchinson starred in his second game for Detroit, breaking the franchise’s rookie record for single-season sacks.

The Lions recorded their first win of the season after a narrow opening Sunday loss to Philadelphia at Ford Field.

Hutchinson and his Detroit teammates will look to extend their winning streak to two games when they play in Minnesota on Sunday.

In two games, the rookie has three sacks, three quarterback hits, five solo tackles, and two tackles for loss.
