Tennessee fan suffers torn ACL while celebrating win over Alabama
The Vols on the field weren’t the only ones dealing with injuries coming out of the Alabama game. One fan celebrating the historic win also spent time with a doctor soon after the celebration.
This Tennessee fan from Chattanooga suffered a torn ACL in his right knee following the Chase McGrath kick that propelled the Vols to a last-second win over Alabama.
The fan replied to Tennessee author Mark Nagi, who put out a request on social media:
“If you’ve got a story to tell about your Tennessee/Alabama game experience, DM me. At the game, at a bar, etc. the best stories will get included in the Decade of Dysfunction sequel, certain to be the Caddyshack 2 of books.”
The fan even showed an image of his knee from a medical facility. Once word spread of the injury, other Tennessee fans joined in to gather support to crowd source funding for his medical bills.
