I don’t exactly know how youth football works now, but when I was younger in my hometown everything was organized by weight. This was done for safety, of course. Either I just don’t understand the levels of Pee Wee Football, or this is apparently no longer a rule.
As you can see from the video above that Jimmy Traina shared with us, a brave little boy recently tried to make a tackle on an opponent that was three times his size — and three times everyone else on the field’s size for that matter. The end result was even worse than you may expect, as the poor little fella was trucked harder than anyone we’ve ever seen.
We’ve showed you some massive hits here on LBS over the years, but this has to rank up there with the most ferocious. Somebody check that kid’s birth certificate.
UPDATE: Deadspin pointed out that the video is actually three years old and the teams were Shamokin and Pottsville — both from Pennsylvania. Nevertheless, it’s the first time we’ve seen it and all that information does is make us terrified of how large the ball carrier must be now.
