Sammy Watkins is a wide receiver who is being heavily recruited by some of the top SEC schools as well as a few top programs from other conferences. My guess is that when a South Fort Myers high school student asked him to appear in a video he was doing for a school project, he didn’t know he would literally come close to losing his own head over it. I don’t really understand the point of this video or what the project could have entailed — and the emo kid that’s the “star” of it is pretty obnoxious — but the hit Watkins puts on the kid is worth watching. Check out the video of college football recruit Sammy Watkins laying out an emo kid, courtesy of Sports by Brooks. Fast forward to 1:35 for the good stuff:
There’s no possible way that’s how the kid scripted this to go. All of the other hits and beatings he takes through the first 1:30 of the video are harmless, and then Watkins comes along and just absolutely levels him. If he knew it was coming, there’s no question he would’ve been wearing a helmet. Some of the schools that are recruiting the wide receiver must be excited about his versatility after seeing this clip. Then again, I could probably put nearly as big a hit on that nerd if I set my mind to it. Although not during game action, this is definitely worth of being added to our collection of big hits.
