The U is back! Or something like that!

University of Miami football may not be fully resurrected, but sweet Jehoshaphat—one of the Hurricanes linebackers is conjuring up the ghosts of hit sticks past in Coral Gables.

Redditor Nemoran (h/t Big Lead’s Ty Duffy) tailored a GIF of a monstrous hit laid down by Miami linebacker Denzel “The President” Perryman during a recent team scrimmage. 


Yup. Perryman is a bad, school-of-Ray-Lewis dude.

It’s important to note that the running back flattened in this case was sophomore Gus Edwards—a 6’2”, 230-pound body. Perryman, listed at 6’0”, 242 pounds, is two inches shorter and a sick Pug heavier than his quarry.

Regardless of size, any linebacker who fires into the backfield untouched is going to do some damage. This wasn’t the first tattoo Perryman has applied, either. 

Here’s a mix tape of The President dropping the doom hammer on opponents. Make sure to stick around for No. 2, where Perryman can be seen delousing Edwards in Miami's 2014 spring game.

Carry on, Mr. President. I’m just going to stay here by my desk—far, far away from anything resembling a grass field in South Florida.
