Marshawn Lynch might have hung up his cleats but Beast Mode will live forever.

The former NFL running back hosted his 10th annual Fam 1st Family Football camp over the weekend, giving children the opportunity to play football with one of the best running backs of the 21st century.

But if you thought Lynch’s football camp, which he created with cousin and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Josh Johnson, was a light, fun affair, think again.

Footage has emerged of Lynch pancaking a young camper in a one-on-one drill.

He truly shows no mercy, putting his weight on the young kid even after pushing him to the turf.

I'm done

After watching this, we're even more distraught that Lynch is no longer an NFL player.

The former Seattle Seahawks back humorously announced his retirement during Super Bowl 50.

His former teammate Richard Sherman expressed his desire to see Lynch return but the first-round pick in 2007 reiterated his decision last month in an interview with 60 Minutes Sports.

“I’m done. I'm done. I enjoyed my time playing,” the nine-year back said. “Now it's time to watch my cousins do their thing.

“I’m retired. Is that good enough? Which camera do you want me to look into? This one? I'm done. I'm not playing football anymore."

Lynch, nicknamed Beast Mode for his bruising style, was drafted in the first round of the 2007 draft by the Buffalo Bills and went on to rush for 9,112 yards.

There’s a lot of hope surrounding his replacement, second-year back Thomas Rawls, but it’ll be a long time before the NFL sees anyone as unpredictable as Lynch.
