Nick Bosa, brother of San Diego Chargers' defensive lineman Joey Bosa, continued his brother's post-sack celebration on Saturday. The elder Bosa was famous for using the shrug after he sacked an opposing quarterback.

The celebration became so famous that President Barack Obama did it when Ohio State visited the White House after their 2015 College Football Playoff win. As to the impetus behind the signature celebration, Joey Bosa told Cleveland.com that it "just happened."

Well, little brother Nick Bosa is carrying on the Bosa "shrug" legacy, with a shrug of his own.

The freshman defensive end celebrated a big play against Tulsa with the signature celebration from his older brother. He may want to be careful with the celebration, however, as head coach Urban Meyer had some words for Joey Bosa after one of his celebrations lasted a bit too long. Bosa said in an interview with Cleveland.com:

"I held it too long apparently, because Coach Meyer got on me a little bit. So I have to flash it really quickly now."

One thing is for sure, this won't be the last time we see "the shrug," as Bosa looks like he's starting right where older brother left off, dominating quarterbacks.
