A violent fight (if you could call it that) between two Georgia Tech football teammates has been released on TMZ Sports, and it’s pretty brutal.


According to the sports site, defensive back Step Durham knocked out teammate and fellow defensive back Lance Austin inside the Yellow Jackets training facility before this year’s football season began. The footage shows Durham and Austin engaged in an argument that leads to shoving and then a vicious punch from Durham that lays Austin clean out.

“Georgia Tech’s football coaching staff became aware of the incident between teammates and friends shortly after it occurred. Discipline was handled internally,” Georgia Tech said in a statement viewed by TMZ Sports.

I have two questions that must be answered:

First, I would like to know what kind of discipline was handed out, considering that neither Durham nor Austin missed any game time.


Second, considering that the iPhone X was just released and this fight occurred in the spring, what was used to capture this altercation? I mean, this looks like video-level quality. Android users, is this how y’all are living? This is seriously some fine footage here, and I’ve been a loyal iPhone customer for over five years, but if this footage is Android life, then I may have to switch.
