WATCH: Texas LB Gary Johnson ejected for targeting

Posted September 1st, 2018


On Twitter, Texas linebacker Gary Johnson identifies himself as “I Hate QB’s and RB’s.”

He took that mantra a little too far in the Longhorns’ season opener against Maryland, delivering a blow to Terrapins quarterback Kasim Bell that got him ejected.

Johnson connected on a helmet-to-helmet hit with Hill, who was already sliding to give himself up on the play. The Longhorns linebacker was flagged for targeting, a call that was upheld after review.
