Former Tennessee Vols quarterback Jonathan Crompton tweeted a crazy video from a high school football game on Friday evening.

We all know that football can be a violent game, but that description typically comes from what happens between the whistles.

However, that wasn’t the case on Friday night at a football game in Tennessee.

Former Vols quarterback Jonathan Crompton, who played under Phillip Fulmer and Lane Kiffin, tweeted an insane video from a game between Sevier County and Gibbs.

Let’s just say this isn’t what you would normally expect to see at a football game.

Crompton didn’t provide any follow up details, but it’s probably safe to assume that the player administrating the WWE finishing move was ejected from the game.

Hell, if that wouldn’t have happened in a football game, it would probably warrant an arrest for assault.

It’s too bad we didn’t get to catch what happened right before or right after this incident. Obviously it’s uncalled for, but I would love to know what caused the aggression. Was this retaliation for something that happened on the play right before this? That would make sense, though there are better ways to handle situations.

I’d also love to know how the player that got body slammed reacted. It looked like he was about to pop right back up, before the clip ends. He’s fortunate he didn’t land on his neck and suffer a severe injury.

While there’s a lot we don’t know about this clip, one thing is certain — body slamming your opponents is a poor strategy in high school football.
