Pee Wee Defender Does Best Jadeveon Clowney Impression, Lays Out Fellow Youth
With the discussion about player safety in college football gaining steam, there’s no better time for Pee Wee coaches to teach their players proper form tackling. That’s presumably what these coaches had in mind when they ran a standard one-on-one tackling drill for their young charges.
The result: One player flattened, and the other towering above him like Ali over Liston. The hit is reminiscent of the controversial torpedo that Jadeveon Clowney unleashed on Vincent Smith last season in the Outback Bowl, which was recently confirmed as a would-be violation of the “targeting rule” the NCAA implemented this offseason.
That said, leading with a helmet is a lot harder to avoid when the helmets cover a third of the players’ bodies.
