In 2017, former Tennessee quarterback Jonathan Crompton shared a video from a Tennessee high school football game, where one player went full WWE and hit one of his opponents with what can best be described as a powerbomb-like throw.
High School Football Player’s Powerbomb Tackle
Honestly, the kid might be lucky that was all he got hit with, as the that position he got brought up into could have easily been a Jerry Lawler style piledriver.
The offending player, identified as Sevier Count defensive end Jeff Bersch by the Knoxville News-Sentinel, was ejected from the game for the throw and by rule was suspended for his team’s next game.
