This deer may be the best tackler in the SEC


In some light humor to take away from the lull of an evening without UK sports, this video is something you absolutely have to see.This cross country race was interrupted when a herd of deer went speeding across the path of the runners. Unfortunately for one runner, he didn’t step out of the way in time. Take a look.

Somebody get Nick Saban on the phone…

Don’t get me wrong, that probably hurt more than you can imagine. But this kid gets rocked by this deer. Full on, hit into the air, rocked. That deer could be a starting linebacker in the SEC. Speaking of big hits, does this hit compare to my favorite UK football hit of all time? Dicky Lyons Jr sent the LSU defender airborne.

Or is it better than this hit from Taylor Windham that knocked out Tim Tebow?

You be the judge. Either way, man that first video is funny.
