Florida DL Luke Ancrum defends Instagram photo in which he appears to be choking Georgia player
On Monday, Florida defensive lineman Luke Ancrum posted a photo on Instagram in which he appears to be choking a Georgia player during this past Saturday’s game.
However, Ancrum took to Twitter to defend himself, stating that he wasn’t choking the player in the photo.
Ancrum replied to a tweet from Reddit’s college football subreddit, claiming that an official saw the play unfold and that he was never choking the player. Look at Ancrum’s tweet below:
For everybody think I’m choking this man…the ref was right there and seen the whole play. Obviously y’all didn’t watch the goaline play that happened. Watch it and let me know when did I choke him cause obviously the picture just shows the ending results after he got hit

The Gators and Bulldogs are rivals, and Florida players were likely frustrated by its 36-17 loss to Georgia.
It is still an odd decision that Ancrum decided to post this photo, even if he wasn’t actually choking the Bulldogs player like it appears.
