Baylor kicker who got trucked has classy exchange with his trucker

You already probably know by now that Michigan State beat Baylor in the Cotton Bowl Thursday, storming back from a 20-point fourth-quarter deficit to claim an improbable 42-41 win. What somewhat got lost in the comeback was one of the hardest hits you’ll ever see on a football field.

With just over a minute remaining, a field-goal attempt that would’ve given Baylor a two-score lead was instead blocked, leading to what would ultimately be the game-winning touchdown. During the return that set up that score, BU kicker Chris Callahan was absolutely trucked by MSU’s Tony Lippett.

An by “trucked” I mean “Oh. My. Gawd.” Check out the carnage below if you have yet to see it:


Shortly after getting de-cleated, Callahan tweeted “I am alive,” a welcome message as it looked very much like the kicker had been taken from the realm of the living. Friday, Callahan and the man who did the trucking shared a moment on social media.

Very classy on both sides. Well done young men.
