Tis football season indeed — at all levels. While the NFL continues to protect its players from devastating hits at all costs, the big hits continue to pile up in other leagues across North America. Earlier this week, we showed you a sack from the CFL that is one of the best you’ll ever come across. As Dr. Saturday showed us on Friday, the NAIA has decided to get in on the act. Check out this hit that Drew Yeargin from the University of Cumberlands (Ky.) put on running back Ryan Bouldin from Virginia-Wise last weekend:
As Dr. Saturday mentioned, the hit was clean. There’s nothing wrong with a solid football play where you lead with your shoulder. The sad part about it is that hit would have almost certainly drawn a flag in the NFL. Unfortunate as it may be, you can now be flagged for simply hitting someone too hard in the No Fun League.
