Former Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa made 4 solo tackles and added a sack for the San Diego Chargers on Saturday night, and he continued to hone his skills after his team’s 30-13 to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Bosa, the 2016 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, received some pass-rushing tips from another former Big Ten defensive standout.

Tamba Hali is in his 12th NFL season, all with the Chiefs, and made five consecutive Pro Bowls from 2011-15. But before his decorated professional career, Hali was a All-American defensive end at Penn State in the mid-2000s. So, he seemed happy to dish out some of his defensive secrets to a fellow Big Ten  player.

Both players, coincidently, played for  Ohio State defensive line coach Larry Johnson.

In less than two seasons, Bosa already has 22.0 sacks. That doesn’t come close to Hali’s 89.5 career sacks, but Bosa seems prime to catch someone he can now call his mentor.

He might even use some of Hali’s moves to get there.
