Video: Michigan DE Taco Charlton explains love for tacos


Michigan defensive end Vidauntae “Taco” Charlton grew up hating tacos simply because his nickname made other kids think he loved the delicious food.

However, ever since he went to play for the Wolverines, he has become like any other college kid and is in love with stuffing his face with tacos whenever he has the chance.

Over the weekend, he spoke with Tony Paul of The Detroit News and explained his newfound love for tacos, saying he always attends “Taco Tuesday” and even eats them other days of the week.

Now, I love tacos all the time,” Charlton said Sunday. “Whether it’s Taco Bell or I go make my own tacos or whatever.”

Here is the video of him explaining his love for tacos.

If Taco Charlton loves tackling people as much as he loves tacos, the Wolverines are going to be just fine. Over the last two years, he has recorded 49 tackles, 14 for loss and nine sacks.
