Eli, entered the dojo later sporting a blue mohawk, and got the respect of his sensei, dubbing him Hawk.
Hawk became the second best student of Cobra Kai after Miguel.
Over the course of the two seasons that followed we have seen a lot of personal development of the character as he has struggled with ethics, friendships, and relationships.
There was also a baseball player who was known as Hawk.
According to baseball reference, Andrew McCutchen's age 31 season was most similar to Hall of Famer, Andre Dawson the Hawk.
Andre Dawson's age 31 season fell in 1986, his final year in Montreal.
Cutch's age 31 season was in 2018, his first year away from Pittsburgh where he split time on both coasts in San Francisco and New York.
Cutch hit 20HR with 65RBI and 83 Runs scored with 14 stolen bases and a .792 OPS.
2020 Donruss saw a throwback to the 1986 design with a few players getting the autograph treatment.
Fun side note, Karate Kid 2 came out in 1986 and Andrew McCutchen was born in 1986.
What memories do you have of 1986?
