Being in beast mode makes you hungry, real hungry!

Last Saturday, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch coached at a free youth football clinic in his hometown of Oakland, Calif. The clinic drew 800 participants, and this was the 9th year that the NFL star hosted the charity camp.

While at the camp, the 5'11" NFL star was spotted snacking, with a chicken wing in one hand and another wing stuffed in his left sock.

Hey, Marshawn's nothing if not resourceful!

According to, the chicken wings stored in his socks were later consumed: "At one point Lynch is delivered some chicken wings on the field and he stuffs a few extras in his socks. Yes, you read that right, for a few minutes this millionaire, Pro-Bowl running back was coaching football on a warm July afternoon with chicken wings in his socks, which he later removed and ate."

Lynch explained to Maxim why he had to utilize his socks for wing storage:

"My auntie fried up some chicken and I had my hands full, and I don't have no pockets on my shorts, so I just had to use what I had."

Like we said, resourceful!

All chicken wing jokes aside, Lynch is truly making a huge impact on his hometown community by hosting this football clinic. Lynch gave away over 400 pairs of cleats to kids.

San Francisco Police Department officer Yossef Azim told, "These are kids already in our justice system This is literally going to change lives. He's making them see a whole new way of looking at life. He's really reaching a group and affecting them in a way no one else could."

Lynch's cousin and teammate Ryan Murphy said, ""When he comes back home, he's genuine, he's real. For kids looking up to him, for me looking up to him, we see it's possible to get out of Oakland and do something positive."
