Video: Major Wright Major Hit on Manny Johnson in First Quarter
I’d like to say this hit set the tone for the game but that really wouldn’t be accurate considering it wasn’t much of a hard-hitting contest. Instead, I’ll just be satisfied to say this was probably the hardest hit of the game. Florida safety Major Wright displayed exquisite timing on this play when he crushed Oklahoma receiver Manny Johnson as soon as the ball was coming down. Let’s go to the video:
That was only like two minutes into the game. Other than that it was more of a cat and mouse type of thing rather than a physical football game since I would classify these teams as more finesse. Now if it were Jermaine Gresham on the receiving end of the hit, Oklahoma would have really been in trouble. How many plays did that guy come up with??
