We Have Liftoff

A couple weeks ago (on July 6th), Suds posted a video of one of my all-time favorite football hits...that being FSU's Greg Jones absolutely barreling through UNC's Dexter Reid. It goes without saying that Greg Jones is a strong, strong man. After all, he's built like a linebacker with tailback instincts and (to a lesser extent) speed.

Anyway, this above video is nuts. From the looks of it, this video comes via some random high school game. That being said, I have no doubt that this linebacker earned himself a college football scholarship...simply by way of this one highlight. I'll even take it a step further...if that running back survived that hit, then I can assure you that the aforementioned linebacker has tapped out the running back's high school sweetheart. It's a "dog-eat-dog world", and this linebacker will forever own the running back in question. Wow!

And that, my friends, is why linebacker is the greatest position in football. As my boy Lattimer said (and yes I know he played DT in the movie) right before he smashes his head through the window.

"Starting defense! Place at the table!"
