During Saturday’s Iron Bowl between Auburn and Alabama, Auburn cornerback Jerraud Powers was in the end zone defending a pass when he was bitten by a security dog! You can see the video below.
Jerraud, a sophomore, suffered a puncture wound on his left hand from the pooch. This has prompted officials at the Jordan Hare Stadium to re-think about having police dogs on the field. Coach Tommy Tuberville said:
“That’s the first time I’ve had anybody have a dog bite at a football game. It did happen and obviously it’s something we’ll have to look at and make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
The pooch had to leave the game….heh heh.
I was in the back of the end zone celebrating close to the police dog, and I felt something bite me. The policeman was standing there like nothing was happening, and then I saw some blood gushing through my glove.
The crowd was laughing at me and pointing, and then my teammates were laughing at me and that was all they were talking about on the sidelines for the last two minutes of the game. That was embarrassing.
Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first time that a dog has bitten an Auburn player.
