Youth Player Realizes He Hates Football after Getting Wrecked by Running Back
Former Pittsburgh Steelers' linebacker, James Harrison shared the video on his Twitter account. Harrison also said hits like this are why he waited until he was present to let his sons play tackle football.
EXACTLY why I wouldn't let my boys play tackle until I was done playing - so I could be there to make sure they were being taught the right way. Where's the standards for who's "coaching" young kids? This is a set up from the start, they knew damn well what was about to happen! pic.twitter.com/xqjbqwrz1h— James Harrison (@jharrison9292) May 12, 2021
Yikes. Not much you can do when a running back quite literally runs through you. But I definitely don't blame Harrison. That kid might hang up the pads for good after a hit like that. I love that you can hear one of the coaches say (stupidly optimistic) "You're good." Yeah okay, coach. Maybe after he unfolds his body and gets a morphine injection. Let's hope that kid is okay, and finds a nice safe sport like hockey. Wait...
