Video: American Football player gets helmet twisted around, can’t see, gets nailed

American Football is dangerous enough, without playing blindfolded...

As far as we know, High School player Christian Young of Viewmont High School in Utah is fine after this incident, but this must have been a very scary moment for the youngster.

The running back escaped one tackle but during the course of that his helmet twisted 180 degrees, meaning Young couldn’t see what he was doing. In fairness to him, rather than going to ground, he tries to blindly run on before, inevitably, getting taken down hard.
