If there was ever a question of where freshman football players stand compared to their senior brethren, it was answered in the second quarter of the 2012 Fiesta Bowl. Justin Blackmon took a 43-yard pass to the house to cut the Stanford lead to 14-7, and on the ensuing kickoff, the ball sailed fairly deep into the end zone. Cardinal freshman wide receiver Ty Montgomery was back deep to return the kick.
Head after the jump to see what happens when a senior tells you to stop.
Senior running back Jeremy Stewart was one of the blockers in place in case Montgomeryw as able to bring out the kick. He put his hands up to tell Montgomery to stop and the freshman apparently did not quite know what to do. So, Stewart planted him on his butt. Simple enough.
