Ouch! Reporter Leveled by CFB Recruit
FOX Sports’ Amy Campbell learned the hard way that you need to keep your head on a swivel as a football sideline reporter.
While covering Nike’s The Opening recruiting camp earlier this week in Beaverton, OR, Campbell was on the wrong end of a collision with receiver recruit Ermon Lane while conducting an interview by an end zone. As you can see from the video below, Lane caught a touchdown pass and then accidentally crushed Campbell on the way out of bounds.
As has been pointed out, it’s hilarious to note that the referee signals for a touchdown without even realizing the collision that took place.
The clip went viral and has over 100,000 views as of 2:00 PM on Friday. It also ended up as No. 3 on SportsCenter’s weekly Not Top 10 list. Fortunately, Campbell was OK and reassured everyone on Twitter with this picture of her and Lane:

Still, we think it’s safe to say Campbell will conduct future interviews a little further from the sidelines.
