Ed Orgeron

As the new year begins, everyone wants to get off to to the right foot in 2019. Unfortunately for a cameraman at the First Bowl, his new year got off to a rough start.

As LSU Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron jogged out towards the field, ESPN’s cameraman clearly wasn’t ready for Orgeron’s burst of speed. He suddenly went tumbling backward with his feet kicking up in the air as everyone watched.

Fortunately, Orgeron’s quickness turned into even quicker instincts. He stopped and reached down to help the cameraman — whom he just juked — to get back up on his feet.

The only thing that would make this better is if Orgeron narrated the video. Hopefully, Orgeron is asked about the incident at halftime or after the game.
