Biography

PRO: Lavelle Hawkins enters his fifth NFL season with renewed confidence and a multi-year contract extension.  He earned both with the best season of his career in 2011, when his 47 receptions ranked fourth on the team.  The shifty wideout made the most significant jump of his tenure in Tennessee after posting 19 total receptions in his first three seasons (2008–2010).  The 5-foot-11-inch receiver was originally a fourth-round draft pick out of California, where he initially gained his reputation as a dependable, sure-handed receiver who makes difficult catches in critical moments.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
• In 2011, ranked fourth on the team with a career-best 47 receptions for 470 yards and a touchdown.
• Hawkins scored his first career touchdown on Nov. 6, 2011 against the Cincinnati Bengals, hauling in a 16-yard pass from Matt Hasselbeck.
• In 2009, Hawkins posted a career-best 11 special teams tackles.
• In 2008 pre-draft workouts, he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.49 seconds.

TITANS TIDBITS: 
• Hawkins was raised primarily by his grandmother, Janet Curley, in the Sierra Vista housing projects in Stockton due to the death of his father when he was only 18 months old and his mother “going through some things” during his childhood.
• Hawkins endured a long road to eventually find athletic and academic success at Cal.  He worked tirelessly with a tutor in high school to become eligible for NCAA Division I sports and eventually enrolled at Louisiana State University in the summer of 2004. However, after LSU’s first game he decided he needed to be closer to home and transferred to City College of San Francisco for one season.  He then was offered a scholarship at Cal beginning in 2005, and his dream of playing major college football was fulfilled.  As a senior, he earned Cal’s Dink Artal award as the player showing academic commitment and improvement, and he is within a few credits of receiving his degree.
• Hawkins hosts an annual youth football camp in his hometown of  Stockton.
