In what pretty much summed up the entire game for the Bulldogs, Alabama linebacker Reggie Ragland absolutely rocked Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell on a pass up the middle early in Bama’s huge 21-3 second quarter.
Luckily for Mitchell, he was able to walk away unscathed. And lucky for us, he was able to tell us what it feels like to get trucked by one of the game’s hardest hitters.
“I didn’t see much of him. I don’t think, unless he hit me that one time. I don’t know who that was. Somebody hit me. Was that him? Oh, he can hit.”
Here’s what Ragland had to say about the bone-crunching hit he delivered.
“It felt good, I did my job,” Ragland told AL.com reporters. “I did what I was supposed to do.” Ragland, a potential first round pick according to CBSSports.com, remains the heart and soul of this Bama linebacking core and with hits like this it’s easy to see why.
AL.com even ranks the hit as the fourth biggest moment of the 38-10 blowout victory for the Crimson Tide, sandwiched between Jake Coker and Richard Mulaney’s 18-yard hookup in the first quarter and Coker’s 45-yard bomb to WR Calvin Ridley to put the Bulldogs away.
