If you love football, surely this is the perfect time of the year for you. The Hawaii Warriors aren’t exactly one of the best teams in college football, but all eyes were on them on Thursday night as they took on the USC Trojans in one of the top games of opening day.
Warriors quarterback Taylor Graham had one of the best hits from a quarterback you will ever see and USC cornerback Kevon Seymour was the unfortunate victim.
Watch this incredible hit from the Ohio State Buckeyes transfer QB:
As you can see, he cared little about his own body when helping his teammate pick up some valuable first-down yardage. While his coach might tell him to be more careful next time — maybe not saying it that nicely — he still made what many people would consider a hit deserving much respect.
Graham and the Warriors ended up losing the game 30-13, however, and the quarterback had a pretty awful game as well. Passing for 208 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions would usually be enough to warrant the guy’s starting spot to be taken from him, but Norm Chow and the Warriors weren’t expecting too much — especially in the first game against the Trojans.
Hawaii could be in for a long season if these numbers are the norm for him, but at least he can block. Well, maybe they could convert him to tight end — he has the stature. Graham stands 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds.
Either way, great block by the quarterback, definitely going to be one of the best of opening weekend.
