Where was your hardest hit and on who?
My hardest hit...Hmmmmm. Well hopefully that is yet to come! I have had some hard hits my first three years, but have been slowed down by injuries. Last year I hardly had any big hits and was very dissapointed with that fact. This year I am looking to make big hits and put fear into the opponent. As for my hardest hit so far, I would have to say it is a tie between two hits on Texas A&M. (The above picture shows one of my runner up hits). My red-shirt Freshman year I had a hit on Jamie McCoy #4 in Lubbock. It was a huge collision but I put my head down too low, I'll never do that again! I actually ended up hurting my back and fracturing a few vertebrae because I had my head down. Lesson for all the young players out there! My next hit was during my Sophomore year on Jeff Fuller #8 in College Station. The ball was tipped up by the corner on the sideline and was still within reaching distance of Fuller, so I came in and made sure he was not going to catch it. The referees made a bad call and said it was unsportsmanlike, but if you look at the film the ball still had a chance to be caught. Check out the videos of these two hits below. Anyway, I think those were two of my hardest hits when it comes to impact so far, but look for more to come this year!
