High School Football Player Ends Play With Nasty Eye Gouge

Aqib Talib is apparently an inspiration to youths all across this great land. During this game between Minneapolis North and Minneota High, North defender Antwan Cobble jabbed the everliving shit out of Minneota Isaac Hennen’s eye. North would go on to lose the Class 1A Prep Bowl 35-18.

No penalties were called on the play. As it was a rivalry game, both teams appeared pretty fired up:

North head coach Charles Adams said Sunday morning that he did not see the play, but his school’s administrators have been in touch with Minneota officials about the incident.

“I don’t teach kids to do that, to poke people in the eye,” Adams said. “I don’t accept it or tolerate it.”

Adams, however, did say there was plenty of questionable behavior going on by players on both sides.

“My players usually respond to things that are happening,” he said. “It was chippy on both sides. … There were a million things that could’ve been caught on the field by either team.”
