Alabama’s Irv Smith Jr. Trucks Photographer After Game-Winning TD


via Twitter/recordsANDradio

Alabama tight end Irv Smith Jr. was one of the first players to run into the endzone to celebrate DeVonta Smith’s 41-yard game-winning touchdown catch in overtime to clinch the College Football Playoff National Championship at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Unfortunately for one photographer, he just so happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

As Smith Jr. attempted to swarm his teammate, a photographer got in the way and was trucked by the Crimson Tide tight end.

Of course, one eagle-eyed viewer saw the moment and immediately recorded the blooper for all of social media to see.

Check it out:

Whoops. Way to take the bump, though.

And let this be a lesson to photographers in the future: If you are trying to get celebratory shots of a big, walk-off moment, make sure you aren’t anywhere in between the person who made the play and his team’s sideline.
