Look, let us start off by saying that this hit pales in comparison to Jadevon Clowney's tackle of doom. Because, like we said on Jan. 2, it was going to be real difficult to top that hit by Clowney. However, we gotta give credit to Mekhai Bates of Hill City (Ks.) Ringneck high school. He absolutely laid out an unsuspecting defender with an aggressive block, sending dude's helmet flying off. It was beautifully brutal. If...if that's a thing.
