Da’Shawn Hand lays the smack down

Woodbridge (VA) High School defensive end Da’Shawn Hand served
notice as to why many consider him the top overall recruit in the
Class of 2014.

At one point in his team’s 26–22 win over Osbourn
Park last Friday, Hand picked up opposing running back Josh Hayes
as if he weighed nothing — no surprise considering that Hand
is 6-foot-5 and 262 pounds — and suplexed him to the turf.

“I was surprised I picked him up,” Hand told The
Washington Post afterward. “Because I was sitting there, and
I grabbed him, and I was like, ‘Hmmm.’ … It was cool.
Did you get that on camera?”

Yes, Da’Shawn, they got that on camera. The move was
eerily similar (though thankfully not as violent) as what LB
LaMichael Fanning
did
last year for Alabama
— which, coincidentally, is one of
three schools (along with Florida and Michigan) among Hand’s
finalists.

If we were a high school running back about to face Hand this
fall, we’d call into school sick that Friday.

Here’s the full highlight, including Hand talking about his
hit:
