One would think that a 103-yard kickoff return would stand alone on a highlight reel, but thanks to Pete Carroll, we have so much more.

On Friday night during the Seattle Seahawks-Denver Broncos preseason game, 2015 third-round pick Tyler Lockett busted a kickoff return loose for a 103-yard touchdown. It was electrifying and will surely have Seahawks fans buzzing all week.

For those who don't particularly care for preseason highlights, we have Pete Carroll. 

Carroll was so focused on what Lockett was doing to the Broncos special teams unit that he did not realize he was in the path of the trailing referee. The ref proceeded to blast the 63-year-old Carroll, who was lucky to escape without any serious injuries. Thankfully, the ref appeared to be unharmed as well.

To add insult to injury, Carroll was flagged for his involvement in the play:
