A fan's seemingly innocent video from the end of Saturday's Washington State-Washington game has gone viral online after it was a revealed that the footage appears to show a fan's attack on a Washington player.
The video below, posted by YouTube user Derek Hahn over the weekend, shows Washington State fans storming the field after the Cougars' upset win over the rivals Huskies in overtime. If you look closely at the :10 mark, you can see a figure in white walking away from the swarm of fans. As it turns out, that is Washington's star tight end, Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Just three seconds later, at the :13 mark, Seferian-Jenkins is decked by a fan wearing all black.
Seferian-Jenkins did not comment on the incident following the game, but he tweeted the following message:
"I prayed for that man that struck me. He must have some issues."
No arrests were made in relation to the incident.
Seferian-Jenkins had a breakout year in 2012 and emerged as one of the top tight ends in the country. The sophomore caught 63 passes for 791 yards and scored six touchdowns.
