And that's what happened when West Virginia wide receiver Shelton Gibson hauled in a 41-yard score against Maryland on Saturday and ran into an opposing Terrapins cheerleader in the process.
And just to show chivalry isn't dead, Gibson trotted back to check on the pompom girl after laying her out — but not before basking in the glory of his score.
She was OK, but probably won't turn her back to the end zone ever again.
Perfect throw + blazing speed = @WVUFootball TD. Skyler Howard hits Shelton Gibson for a BEAUTIFUL 41-yard score. http://t.co/tauFDTYzOg— Big 12 Conference (@Big12Conference) September 26, 2015
