Being an athlete all my life, I have never done post score "celebrations".  This is the exact reason why.

Notre Dame's Dru Tranquill blew out his knee celebrating a great play he just executed, keeping Georgia Tech from scoring. Sadly, a totally avoidable injury.

I tell my young son who is into sports to not do silly "celebration jumps" like this, too. He asked me why, and I told him that you can get hurt. Then I made him watch this video. Sad part is, Dru will probably be out for the rest of the season. Lesson be learned.

Hopefully, coaches will take a note as well and tell their players not to do things like this which can result in a career ending injury.

We hope you feel better Dru!
