15 Sons Who Outshined Their Athlete Dads

Clay Matthews III

Father: Clay Matthews, Jr.
Son's Stats: 147 TKL 37.5 SK 4 INT 7 FF, 1x Super Bowl Champion, 3x Pro Bowler
Father's Stats: 1,561 TKL 69.5 SK 16 INT 27 FF, 4x Pro Bowler

We might be a little early on this one, but it's safe to say that Clay Matthews III is a bonafide star. If you compare his first four years with his father's, the youngin' blows his pops out of the water. He gets sacks like nobody's business and has already racked up half as many as his father in only four seasons. Daddy was a baller, too. Matthews, Jr. had a nose for the ball amassing 16 picks and forcing 27 fumbles in his 19-year career. They come from a prominent NFL family with a bunch of brothers and uncles having successful careers in pro football, including Grandpa Clay, Sr...Matthews rules! (Billy Madison, holler at your boy).
